    That's because you are not doing the drawing in the Paint event of the form. Refresh will force a paint, and that wipes out what you have done. Do all drawing in the Paint event, not in Load or...

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    32-bit won't be disappearing anytime soon. The advantage of 32-bit over 16-bit was very large, especially since 16 bit dealt with those memory models, which were a bad idea even at the time. The...

    That's not true, but it IS very telling. Why isn't Linux on every desktop? I would say it is two things:

    2) Less software.

    The first is solvable, and may have already...

    The dlls are loaded dynamically because they are plugins. The set of plugins can change at any time, and, of course, are added after program installation, so dynamic loading is the only option.
