Hi,

I am receiving this message after stop a brekpoint in the Form. If I have a breakpoint in the module and stop, it doesn't crash the VB.

Here are the dlls I got from Process Explorer when the VB crashes:

gridex20.ocx (package)
faultrep.dll (new object)
ieframe.dll.mui (deleted object)
olepro32.dll (deleted object)
winsta.dll (new object)
wtsapi32.dll (new object)

This error only happens with one specific project.

Thank you in advance.

Can you supply some more information? What is the purpose of the script? And if you remove the breakpoint, will it crash?

It only happens in the Form and not in the Module. In any Form. No sub procedure specific.

No, The existing project has many forms and many modules. If I break point in the module and it stops the execution in the break point and then I select to stop it in the button, it will not crash. However, if I do the same in any form, it will crash.

I have done the same in others projects and didn't crash the VB.

try to determine what is different about this project.  
   Different version of ms access?
    Missing vb library references?
          etc

I didn't check all object you're referencing but winsta.dll is using some sub classing method wich is very bad in Vb and CANNOT be interupted.  Could even make a BSOD occur

The only secure way to use subclassing in Vb is to DEACTIVATE IT when debuging.
and would be though to do if you're using a DLL.

I prefer to sub class inside Vb at all time since it give more control over it.

you cannot use IDE DEBUG mode WHILE your form is subclassed.

do you confirm your form was subclassed ?
because if so, like I said, you cannot debug in the IDE while subclassed.
