Now I have several App.EXEs that will not run.
They all run just fine in the IDE.
The crashing app:
Never get to the first line in Sub Main(). e.g. A MsgBox never
Throw all sorts of error messages that make no sense to me.
I put Line Numbers in sub Main and an error handler but get the
message from the error code
Exiting Main: Fatal Error: Line 0
First executable line is 10.
AppName: Log Message
Resource with identifier 'VERSION' not found
AppName: Log Error
Application-defined or object-defined error
Sometimes the App.EXE is left in memory and I use Process Explorer to
ProcMon follows the goings on but I cannot see anything that kills the
app although I do see how MS does some strange and interesting things.
I have the C++ debugger installed and only once did it start but
unfortunately I did not have the symbolic checkbox checked in the IDE
for the compiled code. I do now but it has not generated the same
Other large VB6 apps that I wrote run just fine as an App.EXE.
So the big question is ... What is the difference between running as an
EXE or in the IDE? Where do I find out this information so maybe I can
isolate what some of my apps are doing that Windows or whatever does
BTW, the other large app that does not run offers absolutely no error
