Program for Changing Screen Resolution without User Intervention
I'm trying to write a program that changes the screen resolution to 800 x
600 x 16 bit. I found the following on the internet, but evidently
Microsoft has reorganized. I can't get to this link anymore.

Does anyone know where it has been moved to?
In order to clarify what I'm looking for:
1) I don't want a program like QuickRes that requires user interaction. I
just want to set the resolution to 800 x 600 x 16 bit. If QuickRes takes
command line parameters that set the resolution, I could use it. I can't
find any documentation that explains the QuickRes command line parameters.
2) I don't want a program that sets the resolution only while that program
is running. I need to set the resolution, run several other programs that
don't have the capability of setting the resolution, then set the
resolution back to what it was before. I know that Direct X programs can
set the resolution, but there doesn't seem to be anyway to keep the new
resolution once the Direct X program ends. The resolution is set back to
what it was before.
I may not have access to this newsgroup for the next couple of days.
