    have you included the forms in the project?
    you need to do that before you can try to run the program...
    umm if you need further help let me know...

    hope it helps

    Don't know about XP, but when I transferred a vbp from a 95 box to an NT4 box, I had to start a new vbp, then add all the forms & modules to it - that was the only way I could get the project working on the NT box.

    Thanks to both:
    Ill work on that aspect. VB is working perfectly on XP, but it doesn't like files generated under 98.
    I would expect that XP might be similiar to NT. Will post any progress or lack thereof later.

    Thanks to all for the input.

    Below is M-soft recommendations for moving VBP files from a 98 machine to an XP machine.

    1 Select the VBP file on the old computer & double click.
    2 Select the project explorer
    3 Click all the + signs to full expansion.
    4 Make a list of all the files that are in Project explorer( they are
    in parentheses)
    5 Close VB6 and copy all the files on the list to a floppy except system specific files such as vbw frx oca.

    6 Shove the floppy into the new computer and place all the files in a folder
    7 On the new computer double click on the vbp fileand note any errors that occur. It will either tell you that a file is missing or generate a log file.


    One more thing. If you are trying to access the date with a 2 digit
    year that will have to be coded in. XP gives forth with a 4 digit year.

    the reason for that is that XP is derived from 2000 which is derived from NT4.0 and in certain cases is called NT5.0 in the early versions of Win2K you could open a cmd line interface and type ver and it would spit out
    Windows NT 5.0
    Now the thing about WinXP is that MS wanted to take the GUI aspect of 9x and the OS aspect of the NT technology...and put them into 1...win 2K was supposed to do this, but flopped in that sense...just ended up being a newer NT and ran well for server type operations...And XP is this elaborate design to incorporate the .Net design and the GUI + ease/operability...So XP will run like a NT machine...

    hope that helps a little
