Only by hacking up the existing NSIS...

So? Is anyone up to the task, or perhaps...
Could Justin add the option to use either a gradient or an image?

It's possible to hack up the splash so that it will stay on the background, someone already did this I can remember, so search the form for "splash" or something...
Good luck, Hn3.

Is there a way to find the user's desktop resolution?

For Win9x systems, check HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Display\Settings\Resolution. No idea for Windows NT.

The only way I have found is with an extarnal DLL:
HDC hdc = GetDC(NULL); // retrieves the device context for the entire screen
if (hdc == NULL)
return GetDeviceCaps(hdc, HORZRES); // return width, in pixels, of the screen.
return GetDeviceCaps(hdc, VERTRES); // return height, in raster lines, of the screen.
For a complete list of constant GetDeviceCaps knows to handle go to:
