Hello, im re-writing a question because I went in wrong zone. Im started it as new here:

I did an application VB.NET with VS 2008. the app is running perfectly when I run my SQL and VS as administrator. Also, running perfeclty when I press the run button.

Now, when I try to execute via the EXE file inside the folder DEBUG, im having an error somewhere in the app that does not show up when I press the run button inside VS2008...

Also that EXE i did run as Administrator so I dont understand, whats the damn difference??

My Error is (see in code snippet)

and line 13 is :

        If getPanel("panelInner0").VerticalScroll.Visible = True Then

by the way, i tried to put in comment that IF and i had no more error.
but i still dont understand why the EXE dont like that if and inside VS2008 its fine... ?!?!

Probably the flow of your program does not go as you expect it to so that you miss the code that defines the object.

If careful examination of the code does not reveal where that might be, you will have to resort to writing a log file to trace the program flow.

maybe it is just a timing problem. have you tried to move that code into the Activate event when you are sure that the controls are fully loaded?

and again, Are you trying to run your application on the same or from another one? If it is another one, you are probably missing a component. If you are running from the same PC, an object was not set. Can you tell which object it is?

instead of setting your code into the Form_Load event, try to set it in the Form_Activated event.
