Hello Experts,

I have a single user running XP that gets a run time error when he clicks on a control box that opens a form. I'm having him uninstall his copy and reinstall a different copy to see if it helps.

Any other ideas of what may be causing this error, I don't receive the error on my XP PC.

Thanks,
patentinv

Daniel,

It says --- Execution of the application has stopped due to a run time error.

You might dealing with a Reference problem on that particular PC.
Do you use a Runtime version, split database?

How is your error handling setup in your database?

Ok, give me a few moments it may be a path/reference issue, I'm testing.

I use a runtime version. I don't use a split database.

The error handling has not been considered besides simply lines of code in the modules.  I'm having the user reinstall the new copy, when he gets a chance to see if the reference/path that I changed fixes it, I'll know later tonight or tomorrow.

Its recommended to use a split database, especially when using multi-user.

In Runtime modus its realy important to have a very good error handling, it can crash easily if you have not trapped an error correctly.
