  1. Re: [VB6] ActiveX CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi Erwin69, yes that is exactly how I did it, editing the frm files by hand. You have to edit all the control types / classes in the "header" section of the frm, but also you will have to change...
  2. Re: Run-time-error ī429ī ActiveX component canīt create object

    What specifically was updated? What changed? Thanks
  3. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    FWIW I've been running VBCCR1x in a SxS manifest for years and have never had a problem either.
  4. Re: Windows 10 Run-time-error -2147221164 (80040154) Class not registered

    In general (not specific to this OCX) I've found that our manifested VB6 apps are far more robust. Our manifest is quite comprehensive of dependencies and this has reduced a lot of brittleness and...
  5. Re: Windows 10 Run-time-error -2147221164 (80040154) Class not registered

    Registering it manually was a workaround for the problem in the manifest. If you can correct the manifest then it isn't necessary.

    I've sometimes found Process Monitor and Process Explorer...

  7. Re: Run-time-error ī429ī ActiveX component canīt create object

    IIRC the problem is that Win10 accepts images to be loaded into the imagelist at design time which are NOT acceptable to Windows 7. So everything works fine on a Win10 dev machine but can fail when...

  9. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    One reason I can think of is for long-term archival in source control. I've been in the situation where you no longer know what source images were used, and no one wrote that down either. But you...
  10. Re: ImageList bug report

    This seems like a similar / same root issue as I had mentioned a few weeks ago (.

    The problem in my case was that the 32-bit icon was allowed under Win10, and then caused mysterious failures on...
  11. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Krool, one other thing to consider is the way this problem becomes visible when it occurs. In my original post I showed the error messages I was getting which said something about "licensing" issues,...
  12. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi Karl, Thanks for sharing your experience - that is exactly what I have narrowed my problem down to also. I think something has changed in Windows. It is not a bug in VBCCR, its just that VBCCR...
  13. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hello Steve - yes, this worked - thank you for the clear explanation & help.

    I'm still surprised that this depends on the Windows version... if they have "improved" the mechanism in Windows 10 to...
  14. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    I have managed to narrow this down to the following scenarios.

    On PC #1:
    Load a specific ICO file into ImageList on a form. No problem.
    Open / close that form in designer - No problem.
    Compile...
  15. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Well I've made a little progress...

    Trying to narrow this down: In the IDE, I decided to load / save all the forms in the project which use any VBCCR16 controls. Sure enough, I found one form...
  16. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi wqw,

    I thought it was updated to SP6 but I double checked just to make sure - it is. It says SP6 in Help > About.

    But thanks for the suggestion.
  17. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Additional detail - this error occurs on our build environment (a Win7-32 virtual machine), but not on another developer's PC.

    So there is something environmental which is somehow influencing...
  18. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    I use Kinook Visual Build Pro to run the VB6 build, and I believe that is what it does, yes. The same error messagebox popped up when that was running as when I build from the IDE (the screenshot I...
  19. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

  20. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    I totally understand that... I was mainly hoping you might already have familiarity with this. I will try to narrow down what is going on. The build environment hasn't changed in years so I doubt it...
  21. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi Krool, I'm using VBCCR16 (1.6.0.12) and have the following problem: during compilation of my EXE the following error message pops up:



    I've pasted a screenshot of this below.

    There have...
  22. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Thanks Krool, this was probably the cause of the issue I mentioned in a prior post . I'll try to setup my example again and confirm if the problem is gone.
  23. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    chosk, if you can reliably reproduce the problem on some PC, then I would try to substitute in the older version of VBCCR which you used and see if the problem is then resolved. (Ideally without...
  24. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    After seeing your video (nicely done BTW) I did some more tests to see if I could find another cause of the flicker. I could not. I disabled the entire timer event because it did some other...
  25. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    I noticed a small glitch in the display of the StatusBar (using VBCCR14.ocx). When a panel is visible showing the time there is a noticeable flicker whenever the time is updated. This could be,...
  26. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi Krool, from my point of view having a single OCX to manage in development and deployment is preferable. And I agree, an extra 1 MB plus or minus is not important.

    Since it seems that managing...
  27. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Referring to post #1187...

    Just wanted to reply to this update regarding the .FilterIndex property - I can confirm now that in my original scenario which had the problem, the issue is now fixed. I...
  28. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hello Krool, as many others have also said already, thanks for your outstanding work on this control library.

    I may have found a slight difference in how VBCCR (still using 12) implements the...
