Page Fault exiting VB6

Simple question - every time I exit VB6 IDE (from either control box or menu) I get an Invalid Page Fault in VB6.EXE (at 0167:00453cb5 if that helps).

Not a major problem as obviously I'm finished with VB when I'm closing it down anyway, but it does stop the Recent Projects list from getting updated.

Any ideas ?

Yes... I know thats probably a mistake ! (given that SP3 introduces bugs when writing ASPs).

I was initially using plain vanilla VB6 but installed SP3 in an attempt to resolve it.

What OS you using?  95/98/NT/2000?
Perhaps look at installing the latest Service Pack for your OS too.

Does this happen every single time you go into VB?
Have you tried just going into VB and closing it without opening any project?

Try disabling all the Visual Basic Add-ins:
1.  Select the "Add-Ins\Add-In Manager..." menu to bring up the Add-In Manager.
2.  De-select the add-ins that you wish to unload.
3.  Press OK to unload the add-ins.

AzraSound - nope... hard to put my finger on exaclty when it started. I have seen the same problem on a different machine but I've switched to a new machine recently and it is now happening on this machine.

For additional info - I dont have any non-standard addins (not even the evil SourceSafe) installed but I'll try removing them all.

Add-Ins were a source of this type of error in VB5, but supposedly fixed:

"FIX: Invalid Page Fault When Shutting Down Visual Basic 5.0"

Aha... it is related to add-ins after all. SourceSafe had been installed on my machine but has not been working correctly (no surprise there). I edited VBAddin.ini and removed the entry to vbscc and now it shuts down smoothly.

Thanks for your help guys.

Erik - I've posted a new question for you to have points as the MSDN article was a useful pointer.
