I program on a Dell laptop with an active matrix screen. I recently completed an application, compiled it and it ran fine on the laptop. I then ran the Setup Wizard and copied the program setup to diskettes. After this I installed my program from the diskettes onto a "vanilla" desktop which only had Windows 95. The program installed and ran fine HOWEVER my forms lost some of the right and bottom sides. They were truncated off and I therefore lost some controls too. What did I do wrong?? Was thsi a funtion of going from the laptop to the desktop or do I need to incorporate code in my program which redraws the form when loading?
Thanks.

Hi gcassel,
In the laptop, you might have used 800*600 resolution.
In the desktop, the resolution might be different, so change it to the same as laptop.
I think this should solve your problem.
