VFP 9 SP2 editor has jerky movements

I recently installed vfp 9.0 SP2 on a Windows 7 64 bit laptop. The command and project manager windows were moving slowly and jerkily.

I read the articles on this issue and checked the "Disable Desktop Composition" option in the VHFP properties and that fixed it.

The problem I still have is scrolling in the VFP editor using the mouse wheel. The cursor movement keys and vertical scroll bars work fine. I tried downloading the latest intellipoint software etc. to no avail.

So far, I have not encountered this in any other application.

Thank You,
Michael

I don't know how the mouse and especially mouse wheel could work in most but not foxpro windows. Have you set vfp9 to 32 Bit compatibility mode?

Bye, Olaf.

Hi Olaf,

32 bit is not one of the compatibility options in the VFP properties. I tried Windows XP SP3 and it made no difference.

I am checking other apps and so far it is also sluggish in Adobe Reader when using it on a PDF file.

I will look for more and also research mouse issues in general.

I am closing this question, but please let me know if there is a way to set VFP to 32 bir compatibility mode.

Ma fault, I thought there is such an option, but it's merely the location of the installation which already automatically makes it run in 32 bit on the WOW64 subsystem...http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-windows7-vista64-support-32bit-applications.htm

May it simply be dust?

Bye, Olaf.
