  8. Re: Is there a source code for VB6 resource tools?

    How can the resource file size be wrong?

    You have to pad manifests to 4 bytes, but the editor lets you do that, just add spaces somewhere.

    Sorry I'm not understanding what you mean... there's no way to avoid a change in file size when you add resources, that's impossible.

  16. Re: [VB6] ucShellBrowse: A modern replacement for Drive/FileList w/ extensive feature

    Are you sure you have the latest version of ucShellTree (2.6)? And in the stock demo, or how did you modify it?

    I recall fixing a bug like that in one of the recent releases.
  17. Re: [VB6] ucShellBrowse: A modern replacement for Drive/FileList w/ extensive feature

    What's the exact problem? It really shouldn't matter which version the string describes, the GUID is the same. Worst case just remove and re-add the reference.

    @baka: FileLen returns the size as a long, therefore will not work for any file larger than 2GB (2,147,483,647 bytes, 2^31 - 1)

    I'm sure. The combo doesn't even contain full paths, just display names.

    I don't think the patcher in 1.7 is working.
