  4. Re: String has quote by default. How to remove that quote from string?

    Alpha numeric values are strings and strings always show with quotes around them when you look at the values. The quotes are not actually part of the value. I doubt this is your problem, more likely...
  5. Re: [RESOLVED] Error accessing the system registry - VB6 on Windows 10 (Win 7 compat)

    Yep, that is what I would expect. This is nothing new either, was the same under Windows 7 and 8 and I think Vista also.
  6. Re: Error accessing the system registry - VB6 on Windows 10 (Win 7 compat)

    You should not need any compatibility set but you do need to set it to run as administrator.
    If you are not using the run as admin option you will get registry errors on start up. XP compat likely...

    Re: Windows Aero Effect in Form

    It seems that the question has to do with the windows fade in effect which I do not think has anything to do with Aero as it was part of Windows before Aero came to be.

    Sounds like you need to add code to the combo1_click that will populate combo2 based on the selected item in combo1.

    It's no big deal to me, I only noticed it because I was trying to see what the OP was talking about. I do all my VB6 development on a different PC which is running Windows 7.

    Case 0 To 9, ":", "/"

  21. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6 Resource Editor Missing from Add-Ons

    Yeah it definitely was not a missmatch on the SP. The services packs are a one size fits all so no matter if you have the pro or ent version the service pack is the same.

  22. Re: VB6 Resource Editor Missing from Add-Ons

    It will show up under tools if it is loaded from the addin dialog or set to load on startup but if not loaded it will not be on the tools menu.
  23. Re: VB6 Resource Editor Missing from Add-Ons
