    Can't start Eventghost in Regedit->Winlogon (black screen)

    Hei you gaus

    I have a problem with my HTPC project.

    I'm running windows 8.1 for my HTPC and i want to open KODI / XBMC without seeing windows.
    i followed this guide --> ... a_shell%29

    so far i think i have tryed averything now and nothing worked.

    Notes: When i startup my machine i just got a black screen.
    but when i manually starts eventghost it work's just fine?
    I also tried with some other programs and same result
    therefore i cant see the problem.. i think the problem lies inside Regedit or my windows somehow

    I turned on a windows log file (in side msconfig) and in that file i couldn't see that windows wanted to start EvenGhost? (i don't know if it will be written in there at all) but i have uploaded the log file PLUS a screenshot of my regedit

    I will get notification on this topic so i will write back soonest possible

Screen Resolution - RegEdit
I just installed Windows RP on my Asus 1015 PX Netbook. I have heard of programs for Windows 7 that allow you to raise the resolution to 1152x864, but I have been unable to find one for Windows 8. I was wondering if there was a way to raise the screen resolution in the registry.
