    You can. Had to use a bit of trickery since the window handle is not what it appears to be. Therefore I just used a partial string so my VB program can launch WSJT-X, send a single 'Enter' keystroke to the program to close the pop-up, and then unload itself. Of course, all of this is for naught as I'm sure the next release won't have the pop-up window.

    'Dismiss the WSJT-X pop-up window automatically
    Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32.dll" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

    Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim x As Object
    Set x = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")
    x.run "wsjtx.exe"
    AppActivateByStringPart "WSJT-X" 'This calls a small separate module. If I knew hWnd, I could do this directly w/o the separate module.
    Sleep 1000
    SendKeys "{Enter}", True
    KillThisProgram
    End Sub

    Public Sub KillThisProgram()
    Unload Form1
    End Sub

    You should really reconsider. Rapid adoption of new standards is something we can all benefit from. Remaining on a previous version of this software due to compatibility concerns seems counterproductive in this case. -73

    Great, now throw out another working PC for a new one. That's why the landfill is getting bigger !!@#
