You say potato, I say potAto...

Ok - I have two projects...only 'difference' that I know of, is what was self-generated, the other one the 'upgrade wizard' helped with... :[

In my module in the first project, I have:

Public Const strKey = "Software\MyCompany\MyApplication"

Noooooo problem...

BUT - in THIS project, I have:

Public Const strKey = "Software\MyCompany\MyOtherApp"

and I get a 'warning' that:
      Variable declaration without an 'As' clause; type of Object assumed.

Now, of course, I can get by it simply providing:

Public Const strKey As String = "Software\MyCompany\MyOtherApp"

But why do I gotta?  And how come "not" in the other app????

I would guess that the OPTION STRICT option is not turned on in the first project
