I have a problem:
my project behaves differently in development environment, and when user run EXE! I use VB5 with SP3.
I cannot find out what the problem is. (The only thing I am sure about is this issue is somehow connected to focus being shifted from one form to another, which is a bug in VB5)
Is there any general techniques how to catch and debug these differences?

In what aspect is the behaviour "different"?

depending on your control set VB will require more or fewer .DLL's & /.OCX's. A slight difference in the set of .DLL's/.OCX's on the two machines will make a huge difference.

There are also certain assumptions that the development environment makes that the local machines may or may not have.

Give us a little more to work with here.

I think I can understand what happened to you. I got similar problems before. As a general, I usually remove the suspected controls or code to test. It seems slow but I think it's an effect way to debug this kinds of problems.

Good luck.
