A perticular win98 machine crashes with my software.
The "Software" runs great on 100's of other machines and operating systems.

The Date calculations on this machine, crash it.
CDATE returns wrong info.

Ive tried changing the date format etc,
of course thats not it, as it does not effect cdate.

Ii think Cdate confuses the month/year but only
on this machine.


Any help greatly appreciated.

The CDate routine is probably inside a DLL that is not on that one machine. I can't think of which offhand, but there are programs that take a snapshot of the DLL's that are in memory. So find one of these, run your program on a good machine, take a snapshot. Find which DLL is missing on the bad machine.

I think it is from the MSVBVM60.DLL.

Hi!

Check the version of MSVBVM60.DLL, could be XP version or a beta. Make sure it's the same you got when you installed VB service pack.

Or that user has some diferent date format's in use...
About the calc problem, what's the error number and code line.
