    I have written a desk top app in VB6 which I am having some issues running on a Japanese version of windows XP it installs fine but brings up various errors while running.
    Has anybody had any experience of non-English versions of windows or similar problems.
    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Done a few apps in Russian but none in Japanese. Crikey, I don't envy you!

    The only thing I can think of, which is what I did, was to trap the errors but put YOUR words in rather than rely on the locale-specific.

    Other than that, I really don't know apart from trying to change the language on the target PC to UK and see if that helps.

    I have done some more investigating and I think the problem could be linked to the MSCOMM control, which I’m using.
    Anyone got any ideas??
