Hi,

I am trying to use ipwHTMLMailer of IPWorks. I placed this component on a form (frmEmailToTheCustomer ). On my main form I call :

procedure TfrmMain.htmltextContactDetailsAnchorClick(Sender: TObject; Anchor: String);
begin
  frmEmailToTheCustomer := TfrmEmailToTheCustomer.Create(self);
  frmEmailToTheCustomer.ShowModal;
  frmEmailToTheCustomer.Free;
end;

it gives debugger exception notification "166: Busy performing current action" at this line

frmEmailToTheCustomer := TfrmEmailToTheCustomer.Create(self);


 When I continue to run, everything works without problem. There is nothing on form create or form show sections of the frmEmailToTheCustomer.
can anyone advice?

What about if you did



procedure TfrmMain.htmltextContactDetailsAnchorClick(Sender: TObject; Anchor: String);
begin
 Application.CreateForm(TfrmEmailToTheCustomer, frmEmailToTheCustomer);
  frmEmailToTheCustomer.ShowModal;
  frmEmailToTheCustomer.Free;
end;

Also u might want to check the project source (Project, View Source) and see if you have  Application.CreateForm(TfrmEmailToTheCustomer, frmEmailToTheCustomer); listed under the begin, if so u could try and remove it from there.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

seems to be raised of a component placed on this form,
you may check that the component(s) are not active during creation,
it could also be, if you run this within the ide, the ide itself blocks some action of a component

I haven't changed anything but when I tried to run the software at home, it didn't give any error at all. isn't it weird?

so it seems both workstations do have differences,
if in your software any com- or activex-objects are used,
then i would guess, that one/more of these are missed on your targetmachine
