Browse Window not appearing... vb6

Hi wonder if you could help,

My code is as follows:

{

With mdiMain.cdlMainDialog
    .DialogTitle = "Copy File"
    .InitDir = App.Path
    .Filename = Strip_FileNameFromPath(TempFilename)
    .Flags = cdlOFNHideReadOnly + cdlOFNOverwritePrompt + cdlOFNLongNames +   cdlOFNPathMustExist
    .Filter = "*.txt"
    .ShowSave

}

It opens a browse window to your hard drive, so you can save a text file. (works fine but…)

I’ve just come across a Computer (OS = Windows XP) that when this procedure runs it hides the browse window and cannot be accessed, the program itself stops until the user saves or cancels. (In other words the program is crippled).

If I use Alt – Tab I can see the Browse window but still can’t make it appear on my screen.

Is there a way to make the Browse window Always appear no matter the circumstances?

This might be an OS problem (1st time I have come across it in 2 years)  

 Help will be appreciated Thank You

Hai,

The browser window is probaly not on the screen, as windows saves the position of the last opened browser window
maybe if you set the PC screen resolution a bit higher it will show up or if this doesnt work, just rightclick the toolbar and use 1 of the positiong options for all windows on the screen
