Getting Blank dialog boxes from msgbox

I have developed some VB.net apps for use on about 50 PCs in a Managed IT environment.  Most of the PCs are XP sp1.  A few are Win2k.  All have the .Net framework installed, version 1 I believe.  Every VB.net program I run on any of the windows 2000 computers produces blank dialog boxes.  No text appears in the button, box or title.  No icon either.  I'm creating the messages using the standard msgbox("text", style) command.  Aside from this problem, the programs (e.g. the forms) works fine.

Has anyone else heard of this problem?

Hi..

Though i haven't heard such problem before but few hit and trial method i would like to suggest.

1) Check the language and font you are using,
2) Test it on other OS if possible
3) See if oyu are using the Stirng Table in your program that is not able to read from the same.
4) Try reinstalling the applciation and Upgrade the system to latest version of SP and Install Framework 1.1 in the system

Hope that Help.. and when you find the solution please let me know the solution.
