Win98 SE Form Control Limit / Resource Limit
Posted on 2003-12-09
This is my first posted question, so please bear with me...
I am developing an application in VB6.SP5 and have run into a problem.
The application installs and works correctly on XP/2000. It installs on Win98SE, but I've got a problem with one form. When I attempt to open the particular form I get various Error Msg's, from Can't load User Control xxx to Out of Memory to Can't Autoredraw. I've narrowed the problem down to too many controls on the form(there must be 300+) When I remove 50 of my own controls (properly registered, they work fine on other forms and on this form in small numbers) the form loads properly.
Question: Am I running into a System Resource Limit under Win98 and if so, is there anything I can do to work around it?
Could it be my control (activex control I built) that, in large numbers (+100) causes the problem, or is it simply the TOTAL number of controls on the form?
What is the limit for Controls on a form in Win98se?
If necessary, I will glady purchase points and pay for a workaround.
