Using PDW From The VB6 Control Panel,
when I try to install, it tells me that "some system files are out of date ...".

I tell it to update, reboot and start again, and again, and again, until finally I decide there's something screwy going on.

I've read about this problem somewhere. Does anyone know what's going on?

Control Panel
Hi folks,

I have been finding myself setting up more and more ODBC Data Source Names on the computers at work, as a result of my programs' requirements (and it seems never-ending).

Since we have eight databases (which, of course means eight DSN's for each machine!), I thought that I'd like to build something that can do the job for me.

The thing is, I don't know much about communicating with the control panel, so I ask you all out there if you might be able to lead me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance...



VB6 Exe In The Control Panel

At times when we exit the exe file, the file continues to be in the control panel when we click ctrl+alt+del. Visually the exe file is not in the screen but the exe file remains in the control panel. We need to do 'End task' to clear from the memory. This defeciency is taking more memory and on executing the program again and again memory overflow occurs.

Please suggest what needs to be done to the code to prevent it from staying in the control panel?

eagerly waiting for a reply

Sounds In Control Panel
I have some sounds which have been added to my control panel sounds for specific programs (ie. Motorola Phone Tools, Quicken, ect.) which are not Windows or MS specific. Once there, the user can customize the sounds how they want. How do I get my program included in the control panel. Not actual wave files but the actual progam specific listing. You can see what I mean by going to Control Panel, then Sounds. Under the Program events, you see standard Windows type things AND other programs, which is where I would like to add my program.

Any insight would be greatly appreicated.
