VB6 compile problem
Posted on 2003-02-25
Out of the blue - VB6 does not want to compile properly. When I tell the program to compile, everything appears fine, (with the exception that the file is represented by a generic flying Window symbol, rather than it's icon). When the resultant file is double clicked a 'Open With' dialog box appears asking what to use to open the program.
When I right click a the file and choose 'Properties' the DOS name of the file is 'Program~1', rather than the proper 'Program.exe'. I can package and install the program on a second PC with seemingly no problem, but when I try to open it I get the same 'Open With' dialog I got after compiling.
This is happening to programs that I have been working on for a long time that were compiling fine, have also been successfully installed on other machines.
