    Re: Installing VB6 programs on Windows 10

    And you did right-click and use Run as Administrator when launching the setup?
    Do you really need to install MDAC? What do you use it for?
    I would recommend using a third party installer creation...

    Works good fafalone. Tried on RTM Windows 10 64 bit. Used your oleexp 3.01 tlb.
  3. Re: [VB6] Common Dialog Replacement - IFileDialog Vista+ (No TLBs)

    Thanks LaVolpe
    I also suspect a resize would include a resize of the default content inside the dialog... so I would not get any empty space anyway.
    The built in preview pane is fine with files...
  4. Re: [VB6] Common Dialog Replacement - IFileDialog Vista+ (No TLBs)

    Would it be possible to draw to the dialog?
    I would like to draw a thumbnail (not natively supported by Windows) somewhere, when a file is selected.
    I noticed the hwnd was available, but how would...

    Re: Same 'size' JPEGs

    Either resample (change the resolution) so that they match each other before sending
    or
    figure out how to control the MS Word image sizing.
    Your choice depends on what imaging tools you have...
  6. Re: [RESOLVED] Using SHGetStockIconInfo to get msgbox icons in Windows 8.1

    Thanks, I had it manifested for 8.1 before posting and it didn't work. Also tried Windows 10 preview but the difference between the icons is still in there too.
  7. Re: [RESOLVED] Using SHGetStockIconInfo to get msgbox icons in Windows 8.1

    Anyway, now it is resolved. I set it a little prematurely. And you're still a VB6 superhero!
  8. Re: [RESOLVED] Using SHGetStockIconInfo to get msgbox icons in Windows 8.1

    Well. Turns out none of your last suggestions worked. However, your original one did with one minor mod :):


    Private Type SHSTOCKICONINFO
    cbSize As Long
    hIcon As Long
    iSysImageIndex As...
  9. Re: Using SHGetStockIconInfo to get msgbox icons in Windows 8.1

    Thanks for your response, LaVolpe. Quick as always.

    I actually got an invalid param return when using your SHSTOCKICONINFO declare.
    This modification made it work:

  10. [RESOLVED] Using SHGetStockIconInfo to get msgbox icons in Windows 8.1

    It has so far been convenient to get the icons used in message boxes using LoadIcon calls with IDI_INFORMATION etc.
    Now on Windows 8.1 that returns the old pre 8 non flat icons.
    According to this...
  11. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Thanks. I was able to get it working using the MinWidth property. This is however not the same as with the MS StatusBar Control where Width is writable. No problem for me though, so no worries.
    I...
  12. Re: Strange behaviour from PictureBox

    OK. It feels like a .AutoRedraw issue. If you do drawing to your pictureboxes you need to set AutoRedraw to True to have it redraw after being covered.
    See...
  13. Re: Strange behaviour from PictureBox

    "so I reload form1 from start"
    Why do you do that? You never say form1 was unloaded, so it should just stay as it is. If you need to hide it, use .Hide and just show it again without any load or...
  14. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi, and thanks for excellent work.

    I'm evaluating the statusbar control. I seem unable to change panel widths from code. It says "383 Property is write only" whenever I try. This happens...

    Re: Setup files that can get around UAC

    All exe files with "Setup", "Install" or "update" in the name will automatically trigger the UAC elevation regardless of manifest content. If you want any old installer to trigger it, just rename it...

    Sorry did not have time to try this until now but that worked perfectly. Thanks DrUniCode (and LaVolpe)!
  20. Re: Unicode file name from OLEDrop data.Files

    Hi

    I have so far confirmed that the code (below) works fine to get the date from a string both ansi and unicode. I have also confirmed that the problem is that the string I get from the...

  23. Re: Get EXTRALARGE or JUMBO icons from the system image list to VB6

    Thanks for your reply gibra. However that is not what I am looking for. My goal is to get the icons associated with files, file types or folders from the system image lists, not ones held by...
  24. [RESOLVED] Get EXTRALARGE or JUMBO icons from the system image list to VB6
