General: Replace the Access splash screen

Author(s)
Dev Ashish

You can replace the default splash screen displayed when Access is starting up. Create a new bitmap (BMP) and save it in the same folder where your database resides.  Name the bitmap the same as your database.  For example

   C:\MyApp\SuperApp.MDB
    C:\MyApp\SuperApp.BMP

CAUTION:

    I've seen this technique frequently result in a complete crash (Blue Screen Of Death) under Win NT 4.0.  I haven't been able to duplicate the crash in Win 95 environment.

    Some folks suggest that this can be because of the Bitmap file size, however, I haven't seen any conclusive evidence.

    So, if you're using this method, make sure that you test your app rigorously in both NT and 95 environments.
