    Resolved [RESOLVED] Problem loading VB6 form (Freezes at 15%)

    I have a VB6 project which I successfully imported into tB and was able to build an EXE from which runs. I was encouraged by that result but have run into a problem with that same project. Trying to open the main form, the loading process never gets beyond 15%.

    Attached for your inspection is a stripped down version of the project with only the one form, no other references or components other than what the form requires, and no code at all.

    fan2006, I can't see your attachment. Did you try to open the form? I don't have a problem loading the project but in opening the form.

    Weird... Beta 423 (last before this year's major revisions) can load a version of the project with only the Form.Icon property deleted, making me think it's a problem with the resources binary frx file. But then 538 can't load a version even with *all* the references to the frx deleted (with the identical restart-freeze at 20 behavior, so likely not a mistake deleting properties).

    I suspect it's with the form binary data as well as even the EXE I was able to build was missing all the toolbar icons which are in a ImageList control on the form.

    Much better results with beta 565! The form now opens. Exciting progress!

    If there's a bug ticket for this, it can be closed now.

    Thanks Wayne!
