    Changing screen res in C/C++ or batch? how do you?

    How do you change your screen resolution in a batch file, or in C/C++. I'm currently sharing this computer and I like a certain screen resolution while the other user likes it different. How do you change the screen resolution per user in windows xp. I thought I might do it in C/C++ or in a batch file and just put it in startup, but I don't know how. How do you do that? Unless you know of another way to get it so you can have it different for each user.

    Nope

    Nope, on Windows XP home it doesn't at least. It seems like a very hard thing to do... Everyone I talk to doesn't know how. I guess it doesn't matter how it's done... i'd just like to be able to do it... I don't know how.

    I have found a great program for doing what you want.
    It's called Changeres and you can run it as a program or as a command line prompt.
    It fully installs and comes with the c++ source.

    Get it from here

    I hope this is of some use to you.
