  2. Re: Is there a way to automatically set Compatibility Mode to Windows XP

    MSCOMCTL.OCX does not come with Windows, any version. Your installer must deploy it.

    If it is already present something else put it there. If your program can't find it without using an...

  4. Re: Automation Error In .EXE mode only

    Early binding only works with the version the program was compiled against.

    Late binding is more flexible but only works for features that a group of the versions has in common. It can also be a...

    I think either Excel was misinstalled at some point or else something went wrong on uninstall or replacement.

    You probably are using the same user account, right?

    Most likely when you run elevated your program is seeing the real registry entries which are correct at this point. When you run as a standard...

    Re: how to get crc from zip

    If you make use of zlibwapi.dll you can get the CRC along with the Name (and other things if you really want them) of each item.

    Here's a wrapper class for the purpose.

  10. Re: How to get the "User-Agent" when sending data with WinHttp.WinHttpRequest?

    The value written to the registry is in HKCU so there shouldn't be any requirement for elevated runs.

    You can use API calls to verify/write the value, I just used WScript.Shell for a quick and...
  11. Re: treeview,listview,list1 filter question ( interesting question )

    Another alternative might be to use the same string as both the Key and Text for each node as long as you know the values are unique. Then to do the matching you can try to retrieve a left TreeView...
  12. Re: treeview,listview,list1 filter question ( interesting question )

    I don't know what you are asking.

    Taking a guess, I'll assume the left TreeView holds some gigantic list of Zip archive names that come from somewhere. Under those there are child nodes...
  13. Re: .net Core possibly a proper vb6 replacement

    The garbage collection is the performance sucker. If you carefully hand-manage disposing stuff you might tweak it up or just as easily make matters worse. As long as you max out the RAM on the...

    Well, you have to consider that most people are behind a NAT router, so you'll have to map the port(s) you need from the WAN side of the router to a machine on the LAN side or else look into the...
  15. Re: Any other language environments as easy to use and robust as VB6?

    So much of what is in vogue right now seems to be "dark world" command line oriented scripting languages. Adding any kind of halfway usable UI is usually an afterthought with no clear direction and...

    Re: adding ref to .tlb or.dll

    The TypeLib isn't used at runtime. It is basically a predigested form of source code, used by the compiler.

  18. Re: how to populate listview with this file

    Don't both ListView and TreeView have a 32767 node limit anyway?

    Re: Option Explicit Ignored

    VS/VB6 is licensed to the developer, not the machine.

    It can't be shared. If you have 100 programmers you need 100 licenses, even if you only have one PC.

  21. Re: Windows 85, version 1.0, with Arpanet access and Reversi

    As far as I can tell Windows 7 has been the most problematic version for developers.

    Much of this was really due to MS Office though. As they were pushed to put out a gratuitously 64-bit edition...
  22. Re: VB6 program generates 3706 Provider error with 64-bit Office 365

  23. Re: how to populate listview with this file

    I can't tell how many of these questions are headed down the rabbit hole of trying to use controls in place of data structures. There doesn't seem to be any reason to display the information and...
  24. Re: How to get the "User-Agent" when sending data with WinHttp.WinHttpRequest?

    Took me some digging to find it.

    Microsoft's online developer support site is almost worthless these days. I had to go back and look through MSDN CDs and didn't find it until I was all the way...
  25. Re: FYI: Per-Monitor/System DPI awareness testing in IDE got a bit easier

    I wonder what this actually does?

    I suspect that it sniffs the DPI setting and applies one of the DPI appcompat shims depending on the setting.

    Re: archiveint.dll?

    I'd thought the pattern looked familiar, that explains it.

    I suppose Microsoft might have renamed the DLL to avoid colliding with some other version a user application installed.

    Get List of Zip Contents

    That's an option but using the scripting library like that is a little clunky.
