VB6 Print Preview with Win 7

by THeeter1 / November 2, 2010 1:13 AM PDT

I have several applications using VB6 and Preview.ocx. When I upgraded to windows 7, this app will not work. Is there an upgrade or something else I can use?

I think this is busted.

There are a few other things broke too. I'm thinking of moving to a PDF output and implementing changes to call up Adobe or Foxit to preview this. Then again we are pondering a move to .NET and not dropping a dime on this old app.

I understand .net has more problems printing than VB6.
I decided to remove the .preview and everything just went directly to the printer.
Thanks for the response.

Our .net 3.5 experiences have been "all good." I know our oldest programmer had a hard time making the jump to C# but the rest of the team is cooking along nicely.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
