  1. Re: Process with empty name for VB6 ActiveX and flashing of MS Access

    Not all records nested into top-level nodes in this view in Task Manager are top-level windows. See, for example, what Google Chrome does. It launches a dozen of true processes that are also...

    Mod, please, delete this post.
  3. Process with empty name for VB6 ActiveX and flashing of MS Access

    My customers are using an ActiveX control developed by me in VB6 in their Microsoft Access apps. Recently I have received a report about the following issue. If my control is placed on an Access...
  4. Re: VB6 IDE run as admin no longer remembers its maximized state in Windows 10 ver. 1

    Does not work for me. It is loaded at startup, but the IDE window is not maximized. The add-in does its work only if I open the Add-in dialog and click the Loaded\Unloaded checkbox for the add-in.
  5. Re: VB6 IDE run as admin no longer remembers its maximized state in Windows 10 ver. 1

    That helps if we launch VB to create a new project. However, this does not help if I open an existing project from the Windows Explorer or from the list of recent items displayed by the right click...
  6. VB6 IDE run as admin no longer remembers its maximized state in Windows 10 ver. 1803

    If the main window of the VB6 IDE is maximized when we close the IDE, this window state must be restored automatically when we launch the IDE again. However, on my pc the situation has changed after...
  7. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    DEXWERX, yes, dillettante's SDB solves my problem perfectly! Frankly speaking, I do not need to make VB6.exe DPI-aware for compatibility with my customers, so I excluded this fix from my SDB that...
  8. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    Elroy, is there just one reliable shim that fixes the problem with drag handles in Win10? I turned on compatibility with Windows Vista in VB6.exe file properties only to fix this problem with drag...
  9. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    BTW, setting any compatibility mode for VB6.exe - from Windows XP till Windows 8 leads to this problem with the Add-in manager.
  10. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    Some more info about what VB6 does with the ResEdit add-in when the compatibility with Vista is turned off:
    156201
    And the next screen after PgDn:

    Any idea why compatibility with Windows...
  11. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    After posting the previous post, I found the culprit very fast :). I am using VB6 in the compatibility mode with Windows Vista to avoid any visual glitches in the VB6 form editor:

  12. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    I traced what VB6 does when I open the VB6 Add-In Manager. It searches the registry keys for every add-in using the standard COM CLSID's technique. Here is the corresponding part for the VB6 resource...
  13. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    Exactly what I wanted to hear and to research myself! The problem I have looks like a general problem in all cases, i.e. the reason why VB6 can't retrieve add-in names because of the same failure in...
  14. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    If all developers have those "#..." numeric id's instead of meaningful names in FriendlyName's, then we should know how VB6 converts them to strings in the Add-in Manager dialog. If we understand...
  15. Re: What happened to add-in names in VB6 Add-In Manager in Windows 10 build 1709?

    I also have the MouseWheel Fix add-in installed:
    156011
    However, its name is displayed correctly.
    As I understand, the names of those standard VB6 add-ins whose names are displayed as "#..." may...

    I checked my registry key Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Visual...

    I did not notice it earlier, but one of my customer told me that it happened on his pc too after upgrading Windows 10 to Fall Creators...
  18. Re: Calling IsWindows10OrGreater from VB6 in Windows 10

    Just a comment regarding one situation when RtlGetVersion can lie - or at least, I though so in the beginning :)

    Today RtlGetVersion returned 6 in the OSMajorVersion parameter on my pc with...
  19. Re: Calling IsWindows10OrGreater from VB6 in Windows 10

    Do you want to say that the best way to determine whether we are in Win10 is still RtlGetVersion? It seems the following code I have been using for a couple of years has never let me down:

  20. Re: Calling IsWindows10OrGreater from VB6 in Windows 10

    Damn, the MSDN writers should mention that a function is inline explicitly and noticeably in the function topic - not only with a word "inline" in a sentence in the Example section.
  21. Calling IsWindows10OrGreater from VB6 in Windows 10

    Generally I use RtlGetVersion to check whether my VB6 app is running in Windows 10. But this time I wanted to know whether I can use IsWindows10OrGreater for this purpose and test this WinAPI...
  22. Re: "side-by-side configuration is incorrect" problem for VB6.exe in Windows 10

    Sorry, my bad. I got this problem after I had renamed the new modified vb6.exe to vb6.exe.manifest and saved it in the same VB98 folder ;)

    Dear admin, please, remove this stupid question.
  23. "side-by-side configuration is incorrect" problem for VB6.exe in Windows 10

    We discussed the ability to use VB6 IDE with visual styles in Windows 10 in this forum thread. I solved my problem by incorporating the ComCtl32 v6 manifest into the vb6.exe file with the help of...
  24. Re: [RESOLVED] Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in

    Yes, you are right. It still looks like "#24" in the native VB6 resource editor:

    148697

    But when I open this exe say in VS 2017 to see its resources, I see this:

    148699

    A miracle :)
  25. Re: [RESOLVED] Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in

    I tried to do this for the sake of interest - to see whether I can complete this task using only VB IDE. And know what? I could not specify the type 24 AS NUMBER for the custom resource with the...
  26. Re: [RESOLVED] Upload PNG images into native Windows image list or vbAccelerator Imag

    I meant that I do not resize PNG images by placing them into the image list with width and height less than the size of the original PNGs.
  27. Re: Upload PNG images into native Windows image list or vbAccelerator ImageList

    Dear fafalone, it seems it is only your idea that I am making smaller versions of PNG images for controls like toolbars and treeviews as I never stated this. In my version of vbAccelerator ImageList,...

    Re: [VB6] Another Method for Loading/Drawing PNG

    Oh, now I understand. The Picture object created successfully with OleCreatePictureIndirect when its returned result is 0 is responsible for destroying the icon as its 3rd parameter fOwn is set to...
  29. Re: [RESOLVED] Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in

    I've looked into my code I have been using for years since the days of WinXP:


    Private Sub Form_Initialize()
    ' Initialize Common Control in order to turn on
    ' Windows XP visual styles (if...
  30. Re: [RESOLVED] Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in

    Oh, one more question regarding this. Don't we need to also call InitCommonControlsEx in addition to this, as it is stated in the article at vbAccelerator.com I referred in my very first post?
  31. Re: [RESOLVED] Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in

    Generally I produce res files with the ComCtl v6 manifest and other useful stuff like 48x48 modern app icons using an .rc template like this:



    I feed it to rc.exe:



    An yes, it seems...
  32. Re: Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in Windows 10

    Tons of thanks!! The following cmd helped me to enable visual styles in VB6 IDE in Windows 10:



    The interface items and images in my image list mentioned above look as expected now:

  33. Re: Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in Windows 10

    Oh, yes, I needed to mention this explicitly - I am using an external manifest file. Can anybody point me in the right direction - how to embed this manifest into VB6.exe an easy and correct way?
  34. [RESOLVED] Enabling ComCtl 6 in VB6 IDE with the manifest file no longer works in Windows 10?

    I have been using the vb6.exe.manifest file for years since the days of Windows XP to enable visual styles and other cool ComCtl v6 features like 32-bit images with transparency in image lists in VB6...
  35. Re: Upload PNG images into native Windows image list or vbAccelerator ImageList

    Guys, I clearly explained my goal: I need to upload PNG files to our clone of vbAccelerator ImageList control to use these pictures stored in the ImageList for various purposes - in common controls...
  36. Re: Upload PNG images into native Windows image list or vbAccelerator ImageList

    Perhaps, it was a poor wording. What I really meant is that I do not want to install anything non-standard that does not come with Windows out-of-the-box. If it is a built-in component of the OS we...
  37. Re: Upload PNG images into native Windows image list or vbAccelerator ImageList

    Your code requires the WIA library. As I wrote, I would avoid using any external dependencies.

    As for WinXP, I think we can forget about the compatibility with it. It was just my wish in the...
  38. Re: Upload PNG images into native Windows image list or vbAccelerator ImageList

    fafalone, thank you for your code. Here is also my first rough implementation of what we need based on LeandroA's "hack":

    ByVal sFileName As String, _

    Re: [VB6] Another Method for Loading/Drawing PNG

    IMHO, in the first code snippet we need to destroy hIcon to avoid resource leaks even if OleCreatePictureIndirect failed.
  40. Re: Upload PNG images into native Windows image list or vbAccelerator ImageList

    I think we can consider this thing documented - see, for instance, the corresponding section in the ICO (file format) article on Wikipedia.

    It's a little bit bad that it starts to work only from...
