    Re: ID3V2.3 tag class

    It doesn't do the actual selection that's down to you. Just pass it a filename and it embeds it into the tag as Apic. So simple.

    Re: VB6 radial Progress-Control

    I'm afraid I don't know. Perhaps Olaf or Dil will chime in. What I do know is that if you want the ultimate speed for something then it must be compiled and (even though we frown against it) elevated.

    @ couttsJ I don't know if this applies to you but when I have seen these strange differences in timing, it is usually that the IDE is run elevated but the compiled is not.

    Re: Modernizing the VB6 IDE

    @Ilia I think you have misunderstood. This is an add-in to the existing IDE. Thus it does present some new functions but basically the answer to all of your questions is -NO.
  32. Re: Strange behavior running progra,

    I wonder if this is a permissions issue. The IDE is probably run elevated but perhaps the exe is not. Make sure you run the exe as administrator.
