I'm designing (trying to design...), a database application, but VB6 always crash. It's an habit with him. When I put a combo box control on a form it crash. Then I restart VB remove the control, start the apps and it works correctly. I have never seen a fragile development environment than VB6. I have reinstalled it, but there is no difference.

Anyone have an idea or it is Microsoft the problems?

Do you have any Sheridan demo software or ActiveReports demo? Both have caused problems. The fully licensed Sheridan products are OK, as is ActiveReports with the latest service pack.

tomook,

I am using VB6 and have experienced no problems with it. My version only crashes when I do something stupid. I'd say it have something to do with your current SW/HW configuration.

Firstly did you install VB 6 over an older versio of VB ??? - if so this could be the problem - try uninstalling both versions and re-installing VB 6.

Secondly, if this fails, you probably have corrupt or outdated OLE/ActiveX files. Try running DCOM98.EXE from the CD and manually installing all the ActiveX components that come with VB 6.

Hope this helps...

farzadb, all those are good suggestions. A clean installation is always a good idea.

To amplify my earlier comments, these are problems we ran into in VB6 on lab machines with clean installs (reformat, install NT, vb6, Office97, and the products indicated). Note that the latest versions of both work great.
