  1. Re: [VB6] Use IFileOperation to replace SHFileOperation for modern Copy/Move box/prom

    Thanks so much fafalone!! :) :)
  2. Re: [VB6] Use IFileOperation to replace SHFileOperation for modern Copy/Move box/prom

    Thank you so much for the explanation! :) I don't have VC6 installed anymore so am not easily set up to create a TLB and I don't really need the callback function so I'll just wait for your version...
  3. Re: [VB6] Use IFileOperation to replace SHFileOperation for modern Copy/Move box/prom

    Hi fafalone, First - THANK YOU for this! :)

    I am not actually using the class, but took out the necessary parts I needed to do a basic move operation and it works fine. However, both my code and...
  4. Re: [VB6] Modern Shell Interface Type Library - oleexp.tlb

    Well, .NET has a lot going for it and in many respects is a great choice. But VB6, even 18 years later, still has some significant pros compared to .NET and sometimes is arguably the better choice...
  5. Re: Classic VB - Does Visual Basic 6 support Unicode?

    Just a note that the code Elroy posted does seem to work and obviously is a real easy way to get Unicode to display. :) But the catch is that as soon as you theme your compiled EXE to Common...
  6. Re: [VB6] Modern Shell Interface Type Library - oleexp.tlb

    Thanks fafalone! Yes, I'm a bad, bad coder - I frequently don't declare my variables when I use them for simple things like For loops. I know lots of people frown on that, but I don't care - they...
  7. Re: [VB6] Modern Shell Interface Type Library - oleexp.tlb

    First, thanks for this.

    However, there's a rather quirky problem:

    Brand new project. Add the reference to the TLB.

    Now in your Form Load add the following:


    For z = 1 to 2
  8. Re: Help with this API declaration/call please?

    You know what?

    You were absolutely right and that was exactly the problem! I saw your VarPtr(0) and put that in code even though I knew that wasn't going to do anything since 0 wasn't a variable....
  9. Re: Help with this API declaration/call please?

    Thanks for the thought on that. I noticed that about the pdwIndex too, but the notes on the msdn page say that it is a reserved value and MUST be 0. Though just for kicks I tried it with VARPTR(0)...
  10. Help with this API declaration/call please?

    Hi,

    I'm trying to implement a simple Win32 API call. I've done lots of API stuff before but this one for some reason is causing me trouble (I've recently been working in C# and actually was...

    Re: [RESOLVED] Check if tasks exist

    No, it came out of my own task scheduler module. But Sam posted a worthwhile link showing how you could access the task information via the same scripting object - I hadn't really even read the...

    Actually, it already had it. I posted that exact same piece of code about 2 weeks ago to someone asking this same question. :) See http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?779867-scheduled-task

    Re: Check if tasks exist

    This function below is direct from one of my major projects that I happen to already have open right now that heavily uses the task scheduler 2.0 service (Vista+), It's terrible code, but it works...
  14. Re: CCRP FolderTreeview Unicode replacement?

    Thank you Olaf for the suggestion - appreciated. However, that control is extremely complex, requires C++ runtime, has dependencies on several other of his controls in order to get the shell...
  15. CCRP FolderTreeview Unicode replacement?

    Hi all,

    Been using the CCRP FolderTreeview control for several years which works well for browsing folders. But it doesn't support Unicode. I am aware of SHBrowseForFolderW but that forces it's...

    Re: scheduled task

    Assuming you are referring to Task Scheduler 2.0 (the one in Vista and later), just try to get the task object of the task name in question. If it errors, you know it likely doesn't exist. I...
  17. Re: CLSID in registry for 32 bit dlls are not getting created in WIN 2008 R2

    dilettante is right on here. The issue is one of deployment. As he mentions, just trying to put them in same path and hope for the auto-registering always was very iffy and is much more so now. ...
  18. Re: V6: Abort Program During Form Load

    That means what it says - you can't name your .bas file Main. Name it something else like modStartup.bas
    Then in that .bas is where you put the Main sub as discussed earlier. From that main sub...
  19. Re: same OS, same regional settings, different boolean value localization

    Another thought: MS made changes in the behavior in this area with msvbvm60.dll (the main VB6 runtime) circa SP3. So I would suggest you compare the versions of msvbvm60.dll on the servers. ...
  20. Re: same OS, same regional settings, different boolean value localization

    Hi Alex,

    You said the Regional settings are the same, but did you check the "Language for non-Unicode programs" on the Administrative tab of the Region window on 8.1 on the machine where you are...

    Hi Beth,

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    I do understand (and largely agree with it). Contrary to what my original note might have said, I do understand the need to continue the innovating...

    Hi Beth,

    I too want to echo my thanks to you and the VS team for being willing to come in here and address some of our questions and concerns.

    I do have some questions and concerns that I would...
  24. Re: No need to distribute VB runtime files?

    I can see I'm dealing with people that don't understand even basic programming terms and aren't willing to learn either.

    OCX's are not the VB runtime.

    The VB runtime is the VB runtime. THAT is...
  25. Re: No need to distribute VB runtime files?

    Well, I guess each person can just decide what they want to do.

    For me, I don't include it. And that has worked fine for my 3 main VB apps (including my installer) for several years now. I have...

    By the way, just for completeness info on this topic, I've included the relevant info out of my SSE Setup help file on this topic below:

  27. Re: No need to distribute VB runtime files?

    I said I wouldn't reply. I won't address randem, but I will address you RobDog. The answer to your question is there is a difference between the RUNTIME and other external support files. You are...
  28. Re: No need to distribute VB runtime files?

    Yes, they are RobDog. You are wrong.

    Go ahead and clean install any of the following:
    ME
    2000
    XP
    2003
    Vista

    You will find the VB6 runtime there once installed.
  29. Re: No need to distribute VB runtime files?

    I never once said I was the only one that did these things. But I am highly qualified to know about this since I have an actual VB created installer (not just for me - but an actual installer...
  30. Re: No need to distribute VB runtime files?

    I'm sorry Randem, but you are wrong. I do have all of those OS's except for ME & 2003 (both of which I have also verified do install the runtime). I routinely test on the OS's going back to Win95...
  31. Re: No need to distribute VB runtime files?

    None of this is needed. I myself am a longtime VB6 developer and have a full Installer program developed with VB6 that is semi-widely distributed.
