    Re: App.Previnstance

    Yes you did but that code appears to me to be incomplete. That code only uses CreateMutex but as I understand it (and I may be wrong) that won't work in a situation where the Mutex owner has...

    Re: App.Previnstance

    Ok, thanks but I never had the opportunity (nor I must say, the desire) to get into C++, I can do C#, F#, F77, Cobol, VB, VB.net and a couple of other more obscure languages but C++ leaves me cold! ...

    Re: App.Previnstance

    I've decided to at least give a mutex a try. Does anyone have any sample code? I'm a little confused (and as usual the Microsoft documentation doesn't really help) if the program should first issue...

    Re: App.Previnstance

    Thank you for your suggestions. I too have been developing software for over 30 years and know what to look for in fixing problems, this one has me beat and it's very frustrating. There is no...

    Re: App.Previnstance

    Seeing as you're such a know-all, perhaps you could tell me where this bug is and what it looks like. Like I said this program is over 15 years old, it has been used hundreds of thousands of times...

    Re: App.Previnstance

    Thanks but I've tried a Mutex and it suffers from the same problem, if the program takes the Mutex then crashes, or even exits without releasing it then the mutex is locked and the only thing that...

    Re: App.Previnstance

    Thanks for that VictorN, it's an interesting reply with some interesting links. However I'm uncertain if it actually addresses my issues (perhaps because I don't fully understand Mutex).

    App.Previnstance

    I have an application that uses app.previnstance to check if a copy of the program is already running. This almost always works well (and this program is used by hundreds of people every day and has...

    Re: Vb6 ide

    Closing - I fixed it.
    For info, when I changed the properties window to undocked, it appeared in the center pane and it was possible to see there that the actual properties list had somehow been...

    [RESOLVED] Vb6 ide

    Hi,
    I've suddenly got a problem with the VB6 IDE. On the right of the IDE are two docked windows, the top one is the Project Explorer, it's fine, below that is the Properties window, it's not fine!...
