Visual Basic 6 program stalls during boot up of computer.

I have a Visual Basic 6 program that starts, in Windows Startup, when a computer is booted.

The program works in Windows 7 at all places except for one location.  

At the one location, the VB6 program starts up about 50% of the time.  The other 50% it becomes non-responsive.

Do you have any idea on why this would happen?

Thanks

What is different about that location?

My guess is that the problem is related to the order in which the VB6 program starts, relative to the other start-up programs.  Change the order on that PC and see if the situation improves.

The difference would have to be the additional start up programs that this location uses.  I'll have them change the order.
