 Set text in Win95 Run dialog... how?

Hi all,

    I am invoking the Win95 run dialog box with a shell32.dll call.  I can
set the title, prompt and even the icon that is displayed in the run dialog,
but I wish to set the text in the run combo box.  I have tried changing the
first RunMRU item in the registry to cause it to show up in the box, but it
is not reflected in the dialog without a registry reload.  The call to bring
up the run dialog seems modal and I haven't had any luck using sendkeys to
set the text either.

Any ideas???
Thanks in advance...
