System.Drawing.Dll arithmetic exception...

Based on my search on the internet, I think many people have encountered this problem. But I did not find any solutions for it.

I just installed Win XP and VS.NET 2003, nothing else. When I run a form with either a textbox or listbox in it I get a System.Arithmetic.Exception error in System.Drawing on the line that sets the textbox to a new instance of TextBox class.

What do you think is the cause of this error?

Probably a problem in your code... can you post the code where you create the textbox?
