  • 1. Problem: "No Such Interface Supported" (COMCAT.DLL) ?
    I have a program that was written in VB6 on a Win2K machine. I created an install package using the P&D wizard. I've installed the program on a WinXP machine (no errors). When I run the program, I'm getting a H80004002 "No Such Interface Supported" error. Some "googling" has led me to a couple of MSKB articles that say the COMCAT.DLL is the wrong version and it needs to be version 4.71. It is true that the XP box has version 5.0 on it. But I don't understand some things: If I replace version 5.0 on WinXP with version 4.71, will it cause problems elsewhere? And, how do I replace the DLL when DLL caching is in effect? I noticed that the Win2K unit that the program was developed on has version 5.0 on it (in the \System32 folder). Why is version 4.71 being used by the P&D wizard? (and where is it getting it from?) Help?
  • 2. VB Exit Codes / Error Messages
    I'm investigating putting VB applications into an automated scheduling tool that uses exit codes to determine whether a job has failed or succeeded. I would like to know if VB supports putting a message box up on the machine where the app is running and then exiting with an error code, leaving the message box up. In high-level pseudo-code this would be If Error Occurs Then Message Box "This has failed, press OK to Clear and contact help desk" Exit 9999 I'd want the error to stay up on the machine after the app has exited. Thanks in advance
  • 3. determine character under the caret
    Hi, I'm using a Richtext control in my app. I need to determine what is the current character under the caret. I'm doing this by selecting the character, getting it into a string, and then unselecting it. richtext.sellength = 1 a$ = richtext.seltext richtext.sellength = 0 I can't find any APIs that can do it. But there must be a better way. dos-man
  • 4. activeX controls source
    Hi, I'm searching for activeX controls that looks like office XP toolbars (I need buttons, combobox, listbox, etc.). Their frame switch to blue when you roll over with the mouse... Any idea where I can find this or how I can program this? I also want these controls to be available for use by another program (ie Labview). How can I register them so that the OS serves them to other applications? If you need any other precision, let me know. Thanks for the help, Alex
  • 5. persisting customized toolbars...
    Anyone have any information on accessing and persisting the standard VB6 toolbar properties, after it has been customized by a user at runtime? (buttons removed or the order changed). TIA as always.... Calan "Reality exists only in the minds of the extremely deranged"

Hi,

A want to play a WMA file in VB6.
I have a mediaplayer control from then msdxm.ocx lib
I use this code


'start code
Private Sub cmdPlay_Click()
  Dim sBestand As String
  If File1.ListIndex > -1 Then
    sBestand = File1.path & IIf(Right(sBestand, 1) = "\", "", "\") & 
File1.FileName
    With MediaPlayer1
      .FileName = sBestand
      If .FileName = "" Then
        Debug.Print sBestand
        MsgBox .ErrorCode & ": " & .ErrorDescription
      End If
    End With
  End If
End Sub
'end code

it works fine with mp3 and wav but I always get the errorcode : -2147467259 
and the discription  can't open check filename and try again
the discription is translated and can be someting like this.

Sorry
that must be

sBestand = File1.path & IIf(Right(File1.path, 1) = "\", "", "\") & 
File1.FileName

i Also get the error -2147221164 (class not registerd)

What if you change it to this?
 File1.FileName
     With MediaPlayer1
       If sBestand = "" Then
         Debug.Print sBestand
         MsgBox .ErrorCode & ": " & .ErrorDescription
       Else
       .FileName = sBestand
       End If
     End With

ore testing brengs me to the following

opening a wma in the formload has no problem

after running the code: Set oWMP = New WindowsMediaPlayer
I can't play any wma anymore
the windowsmediaplayer came from the reference wmp.dll
I use the wmp to read the wma tag info. So if i can read the taginfo with
another method the problem is solfed to

ust curious :)
I put mediaplayer from msdxm.ocx and placed a button on a form and voila it
plays ok.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
MediaPlayer1.FileName = "C:\30 Hank Marvin - Nights In White Satin.wma"
End Sub

Is your .wma file playing in windows mediaplayer?
Is your .wma file copyrighted?

es on both
that code works fine
It plays in wmp
and no no protection

it goes wrong after running the code: Set oWMP = New WindowsMediaPlayer
(wmp.dll)
i have tryed some code like your example in the formload and no problems,
but like i wrote after the needed code for reading the wma tags its no
longer possible to play wma but mp3 has no errors
