 DAMNDABLE MAC STARTUP SCREEN!

What must one do to eliminate the big grey box and the "menu shuffle" that
occurs when trying to run stand-alone FoxPro/Mac executables?  In my
Project I have the "Display logo" turned off, but that damndable grey
screen still appears.  I have the proper code that kills off the window as
the first line of my main program; it works, but doesn't come into effect
until the .ESL library file has loaded - anywhere from four to fif{*filter*}
seconds after double-clicking the icon, depending on the speed of the
machine - and this makes my applications look incredibly cheesy.

Any suggestions?

There is now way..  But if I am wrong, somebody tell me, because I hate

include the FPM with a TITLE= so that way the user doesn't see the Foxpro

Thanks in advance.

I believe that the picture in the window you are describing is held in
the resource fork of the file (on a Mac)  If that is correct, you could
go in and replace it with ResEdit.

This would not eliminate the window, but you could put in your own
startup screen.. Title or whatever.
