VB6 on Win7_64HP does not display form when projec

Report Back to Forum Back to All Forums

I have a simple VB6 project created on XP which I am updating on a Win 7 machine.

When I first used it everything worked. Recently when I load a project the Code form appears but not the display.

Running the project is fine, so the project obviously knows where the form is.

Taking the same project back to my old XP machine does not have this problem

Are you running the IDE in MDI mode? It's possible the form is "off screen".  This has happened to me in the past, so maybe for you to?

Using the menu, make the invisible form the active form. Press Alt+Space.  Without pressing any buttons, move the mouse to the center of screen, then tap your directional keys on your keyboard.  The form should appear.

Probably too many steps, but it's the combo that worked for me.
