    Windows 7 & VB6 Error 50003

    Hi Peeps,

    I have a large VB6 application which runs fine on all XP machines. It seems to install okay on Windows 7 but when I try to run my application I get error 50003. I don't have a clue what this error means; I have googled it and some say it's a problem with OCX version but why do I not get this problem on XP. My development machine is fully SP updated.

    Thanks for any help,

    This is just suggestion but I have found several sites hinting at a resolution problem. Try changing the system display settings such as reducing the number of bits for colour as see if that helps.

    When an unhandled exception dialog pops up you can type Ctrl-C to copy it to the clipboard. Pasting such here might give a little more info. Example:
    Run-time error '11':
    Division by zero
