    Hard to say without using code, but the new technologies let you auto-scale to almost ANY screen size. VB6 could NEVER do that, without additional add-ons, which aren't sold any more

    Looks like the background picture is the only thing different between the two.

    Is the picture in the form.picture property or is it an image control or picture box

    Could be a autosize vs stretch setting if an image box if one of the others then I would suspect that the picture got resized

    changing screen res should not make any difference other than everything would be larger or smaller if a label is outside the picture in one res it will be outside the picture in all res unless of course you have code in there taht changes the sizes of things when at different res settings
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.
