Running a VB6 program under XP without Compatibility Mode
Posted on 2005-04-05
I am programming in VB6, SP6 under Win XP Pro. My program runs fine in the IDE but when I make an EXE and try to run that, all I get is a Bong sound and nothing else. Also, the program runs fine in Win 95/98/ME. I haven't tried on WIn 2000.
If I set the EXE to run in Compatibility Mode, it works fine.
I've tried to display a MessageBox as the very first action (Sub Main) but that won't display so, it appears that the problem is in loading.
I will be most appreciative for any suggestions.
