  1. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6 QUESTION: Lazy person wants code to read the start menu

    In the end I added a recursive search for all .lnk files for the start menu in either %userprofile% or %programdata% + "\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs" and in addition extracted the registry...

    Re: TwinBasic

    But surely that would help standardise and potentially reduce the number of those variants? It also makes it much easier for any developer as you can re-use the documentation and testing methodology...
  3. Re: Another good VB6 Common Controls Replacement resource for VB Resurrection

    That is a good find. I don't know if anyone else is aware of it. I understood (perhaps mistakenly) that Krool's controls were based originally based on another development, perhaps the two are...
  4. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Lazy person wants code to read the start menu

    A quick search tells me that WMIC is NOT available on Windows XP editions other than PRO so it is not an option for my program. I would have to bundle wmic.exe with the program itself and that feels...
  5. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Lazy person wants code to read the start menu

    That is an interesting solution, it wasn't how I expected to extract that information, I was expecting a combination of a folder search and a registry trawl but that is a definite alternative as long...
  6. [RESOLVED] VB6 QUESTION: Lazy person wants code to read the start menu

    I apologise, the lazy person is me.

    I am looking for some code to find out what programs are installed into the Windows o/s. I understand largely what needs to be done, open the two start menu...
  7. Re: VB6: NEWS - TwinBasic VB6's Second Potential Replacement

    No, not a win but not looking for a win. Just want fair treatment and greater publicity for both.
  8. Re: VB6: NEWS - TwinBasic VB6's Second Potential Replacement

    Well, I've reported it already so I for one will treat them equally. I want RADBasic to succeed in its promise to achieve 100% VB6 compatibility, if that's possible.

    I like TwinBasic and its idea...
  9. Re: VB6: NEWS - TwinBasic VB6's Second Potential Replacement

    It seems that the RADBasic news post was removed as it was reported by someone else on this forum, the moderator just moved it even though I asked him asked not to - and no it wasn't shaggy.

  10. Re: VB6: NEWS - TwinBasic VB6's Second Potential Replacement

    Well, the mods do need to be consistent. Otherwise it is just bad moderation. I'll take what they do as moderating is a hard and unthankful task but it needs to be the same for all, one rule for all....
  11. Re: VB6: NEWS - TwinBasic VB6's Second Potential Replacement

    The mods moved the NEWS item on RADBasic to the other basic section when specifically asked not to. However, they only moved the RADBasic thread and not that for TwinBasic making the mods seem less...
  12. Re: Introducing MixLangz a Visual IDE

    The worry to me is that this tool is not BASIC-centric and thus is unlikely to be VB6 compatible. It might be useful tool for developing in general providing a nice forms generator for tools that...
  13. Re: Introducing MixLangz a Visual IDE

    That's a different question.
  14. Re: Introducing MixLangz a Visual IDE

    Indic, will this be a FOSS product or a commercial one?
  15. Re: Introducing MixLangz a Visual IDE

    I think it can. The video shows what the IDE is doing and gives a good indication of what it plans to do. It is a video, nothing more. Given time I expect details of progress, perhaps a dedicated...
  16. Re: Introducing MixLangz a Visual IDE

    Which BASIC is the IDE front ending? Is this your own interpreter and compiler or are you front-ending TRUE BASIC?
  17. Re: Vb6 , the Future, and what I have discovered

    Like buses, the VB6 alternatives all seem to be arriving at the same time.

    Re: TwinBasic

    First Class, I know VS Code runs on Win 7 - I will test and reply if there are any issues.

    BTW I sent you some cash a while back for your Rubberduck add in, hope to do the same for TB.

    Re: TwinBasic

    What a bu@@er, I do not use Windows 10 for development and do not plan to either. So, I won't be able to test TwinBasic for the moment. What a pity. I suggest you chaps find alternatives for other...
  22. Re: Vb6 , the Future, and what I have discovered

    Honestly, we should support both! Two irons in one fire all at the same time. There has always been room for a competing yet compatible product to Microsoft's VB6. The major surprise so that it has...

  26. Re: VB6 QUESTION: VB6 IDE running from USB

    Might be worth me creating something that does it all for me, unless that is what Nano does?
  27. Re: VB6 QUESTION: VB6 IDE running from USB

    Very good, will investigate NanoVB6.
  28. Re: Get CPU usage of specific process

    As I said, TM (Task Manager) does not use WMI for that reason, as WMI is too slow to provide the information. I have not seen a task manager that reads the remote process information on a timescale...

    Yes, but whether you or anyone else would want it done - well, that's not really the point. This is a coding forum and I'm posting here as I'm trying to find out how to move it using code, I'm not...
  32. Re: Get CPU usage of specific process

    You didn't mention remote machines before... so, the target has changed?
  33. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Moving the taskbar to top or bottom via code

    - but that requires explorer.exe to be killed and restarted, a bit dirty. It doesn't actually move the taskbar, it just tells explorer to do it for you next time it reads the registry on a restart. I...
  34. VB6 QUESTION: VB6 IDE running from USB

  35. VB6 QUESTION: Moving the taskbar to top or bottom via code

    Hopefully a quick answer will be forthcoming from someone who has experience of trying to do this already. I just need a confirmation that it is possible or is no longer possible in Win 7 or 10.

  40. Re: Distibute an EXE without OCX issues

    Well, you'd be adding "sufficient functionality"... a slider, a control or two and some tests for OCX versions, you'd have a tool that provided sufficient functionality.
