I have an app that is minimized as an icon in the system tray written in VB6.  When I right click on the icon, it pops up a menu.

I use this code:
PopUpMenu mnuRun

The problem is when the menu pops up, if I don't click on anything and go back to something else, the menu does not close.

I put this in the forms Lost Focus event:
Close mnuRun

That works fine when I run it from vb.  The menu closes if I click somewhere else.  But when I make it into an executable, then it stops working.  The menu does not close.  I don't understand why.

Anybody have a suggestion?

Thanks,
Cheers!
