Hello,there... My current Win32 MFC application needs to do some background task while the screensaver is actived. During my application works, it would show a dialog box outside of the screen of the screensave for showing the working status and progress to the user. And now I encounter a problem: while the "On resume,password protect" is set on to the scrrensaver on WinNT-based system, the dialog box on my applicationcannot appear outside of the screen of the screensaver,but if this option is off,it can. I think this is security reasons. Does anyone can give me a way to this problem? Many thanks! ;-)
