Quicken 2004 Reports Accessed by a VB6 Program (Both just Installed On New Windows 7 Computer) Display "Garbage"
Posted on 2013-01-26
I developed a VB6 Rentals Management System (RMS) for a client 8 yrs ago on a XP system. The client uses an option from the RMS to access some report files from Quicken 2004, and then presents some of the info to the screen or it can be printed.
The client just purchased a new computer with Windows 7. He installed the VB6 program and Quicken 2004 on the new computer. The associated Quicken files on the XP sysem were transferred to the new computer.
The RMS appears to be working OK. However, at times when displaying info from the Quicken reports, he gets "garbage" displayed on the screen. Other times he gets good and clean info displayed.
What is causing the displays from Quicken 2004 reports to some times be scrambled and look like it is maybe corrupt?
Would updating to the latest Quicken maybe solve the problem of the displayed "garbage"? If the client updates to the latest Quicken, would the new Quicken be able to read the report files on the new computer that came from the XP computer?
