VB3 - XP

 I wonder why my programme ( believe it,users still using tht program/i just took over) when it is installed in xp .. colors and fonts keep on changing esp when we flick from form to form. Any ideas and solution? TQ

The only time I've seen this behaviour is on systems with limited video driver colour depth (ie. 8 bit / 256 colours) and where there are multiple forms each of which have pictures on which utilize different colour pallettes.

Also, given the age of the software, if may be worthwhile having a look at the 'Compatibility' tab on the shortcuts properties - try running in Win95 mode or  altering the 'Display settings' on the same tab to force running as 256 colours etc.
