Windows 10 and VB6
« on: December 10, 2016, 05:18:29 PM »
Has anyone been able to get their VB6 based application running on Windows 10?

I tried to install the VB6 redistributables but the install failed, I was trying to get Dave Zimmer's Script BASIC VB6 COM/OLE extension module and IDE running on Windows 10.

For grins I ran Dave's setup installer and it worked. I'm happy but still confused what are the requirements under Windows 10 to run VB6 apps?

I noticed the setup script in the downloaded source repository which resolves my question what dependencies were required to get the IDE/Debugger running on Windows 10.

I ended up having to go back to my XP VirtualBox to get the IDE/Debugger to compile. I'm happy that the COMCTL replacement library is working giving VB applications current theming support.

Update - It seems to work fine and with theming on Window 7 and Windows 10 as well.

Here is a YouTube video Dave Zimmer (COM ext. author) did to show off the features of the IDE/Debugger.



The last image shows how the built in IntelliSense feature works.

I am still using Windows 7 on my user systems - and am unlikely to change that position unless I am forced to, which will probably mean moving entirely over to Linux.

The critical application for me is Access '97, which I am told has major issues running under Windows 10.

Attached  is an example of running a SDL_gfx  script from the IDE and what the array dump pop-up dialog looks like.

I would like to add a checkbox to send the output to a console rather than the output section of the debugger. Any suggestions on doing that from VB6 would be helpful.

I also plan to move the tabstrip to the top as theming only works in that orientation.  (sides / bottom Win2K only)

I reworked the IDE form so the tabs are on top.

Windows 10 and Windows 7 versions attached.

I had notice while testing different scripts in the IDE that some of the Script BASIC keywords weren't highlighted like PRINT. Dave had written an editor for the syntax highlighter. What I found is that the IDE is using a generic VB6 syntax highlighting file and I guest Dave never got around to creating a Script BASIC specific version.

Update

I updated the syntax highlighting file with Script BASIC's keywords instead of VB's.

Example attached.

Win 10 window metrics is very peculiar and differs from older Windows OSes. It is also inconsistent from compiler to compiler, as recent tests by J.C.Fuller demonstrated on both BP and Jose's forums. From this perspective, your decision to move the tabs on top of the message window seems the only reasonable solution.

I got tired of fighting with it between OS versions so putting the tabs on top settled things down a bit.

I'm getting close to getting an install built.

Thanks for your post and feedback!

This is an example of  using the DYC FFI extension module to instantiate an IUP dialog in the IDE/Debugger and enabling the IUP Dialog Editor as well.

Here is an example of using the DescribeInterface() feature of the Script BASIC COM extension modue.

Code: Script BASIC
  1. import com.inc
  2.  
  3. 'on error resume next
  4.  
  5. oExcelApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
  6.  
  7. if oExcelApp = 0 then
  8.     print "Failed to create Excel Object do you have it installed?"
  9.     end
  10. end if
  11.  
  12. print "Typename = ", TypeName(oExcelApp), "\n"
  13.  
  14. print "Launching DescribeInterface dialog...\n"
  15. DescribeInterface oExcelApp
  16.  
  17. print "Shutting down Excel and releasing object...\n"
  18. CallByName(oExcelApp, "Quit")
  19. ReleaseObject(oExcelApp)
  20.  
  21. print "Script complete!\n"
  22.  


C:\sbgcc\examples\com>scriba typeinfo.sb
Typename = _Application
Launching DescribeInterface dialog...
Shutting down Excel and releasing object...

Attached is a Type Library Viewer Dave Zimmer wrote that is easier to use than other COM typelib viewers I've used in the past. I'm thinking of substituting the current DescribeInterface dialog used in the COM extension module with this type library viewer dialog.

Note: - It seems the first option of selecting the file works and the other choices have issues. (at least on Windows 7) The viewer seems to work fine once the control with a typelib  is selected.

I was just notified that there was an update for my VirtualBox on Ubuntu 64 and after installing the update to VirtualBox and guest extensions, shared drives now work on Windows 10:)
