I'm using an API call to get Volume Size and Free Disk space (GetFreeDiskSpaceEX) on a windows 2000 machine. When I run the EXe it works. When I complie and move to another Win 2k machine all values come back blank.

What am I forgetting.

Thanx

Is VB SP5 installed on the other machine? It is possible that the computer is missing other components that is required to make the app work.

Download it here:

You might need to package your app with some of the required .dlls to make it work.

The other machine does not have VB installed on it. The development machine is running VB6 with SP5 on it.

Any other ideas?

The other machine might require some of the .dlls that is included in VB Sp5.0.

Try installing that to rule it out.
