    I have no idea what the dump data means and I'd guess that nobody but the people who developed VB would, so your best bet might be to contact MS Tech Support. One thing you might try however (if you haven't tried it already)is to first uninstall VB and then install it.

    I think; therefore I am a waffle.

    Hi Kezza!
    I also get this problem, it happens when I add some controls to a form in design time, then close the form and
    attempt to reopen it or simply view a form which already has controls on it. The problem also happens when clicking on the copy button of the toolbar and when trying to compile an application.

    The problem seemed to start for me also, when I had to reinstall everything on my pc. Can I ask what type or pc you are using, as it could be related to the backup disk not correctly installing files???
    I dont really know???
