VSFlexGrid8 DAO and Windows 7

  • raymartin 5 years, 1 month ago

    I am using VSFlexGrid8 (8.0.20052.221) in a VB6 application and it works with Windows 7, 32-bit except for one thing. I can't drop files from Windows Explorer to the grid (my app works fine in Windows XP). Is this a known problem with Windows 7? What is the solution? My application does allow dragging to other controls but dragging to VSFlexGrid8 shows an "deny" cursor (circle with slash).

    I would suggest you to try the latest build of the same & share your observations

    Windows 7 is very touchy about exe file names that contain certain words like "Setup" (see [html]http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa905330.aspx[/html] in the Installer Detection section). Not only does UAC display an annoying dialog when launching my app, it also blocks certain operations like drag and drop. I incorrectly stated earlier that other controls worked. It was because the file name of that exe was different.

    After rebuilding my VB6 exe with a different name, everything now works fine with VSFlexGrid8 (8.0.20052.221) and Windows 7.
