Cannot change fontsize at run-time

On one of my computers I cannot change the fontsize of any activeX controls.  It only seems to be a problem on one of my computers.  Does anyone have an idea why it won't let me do this?

If this is on Win95/98 then check if any printer is installed on that machine. I remember having problems with fonts on machine without any printers installed.

All machines are running XP Pro and they all have a printer installed.  All machines are logged in as administrators.

===================================

Time to supply more info:

1:what kind of activeX?  3rd party? costume?

2: How that computer is used? is a developer permanently working there?

3: are those activeX control are being enhanced or upgraded on those machine? or other machine?

4: what happens if you try to change the font? you get an error message? if yes write it here.

Answers to unknown_routines's questions

1.  So far I have noticed the problem with Forms, TextBoxes, Labels and pictureboxes.  They are all intrinsic VB Controls.

2.  A developer permanently working there.

3.  No.

4.  No error.  I remains at the original fontsize.

1. Does this developer works on the different locale (language)?
2. Does all machine have / have not / MS Office installed, especially this machine?

...and, are you all using the same font? Check if the default font, or the font you all are using,  is installed proparlly on that machine.

All machines are using MS Sans Serif as the default font.

On that particular machine, try using ms sans serif with another application, such as norepad or word. Can you set a different font size?

In MS Word and Notepad I can change the font to just about any size.

This is getting very interesting and very strange.

Maybe its just that VB have got corrupted on that machine. If that's the case the last resort is to reinstall VB on
that machine.

I think it's a hardware problem, so I decided to close the question and split the points.
Thanks.  There were some good ideas.
