Today following a guess of the blog I downloaded the last version of activex 32-bit dll and install it on my PC. I registered the dll and include it in my vb6-project as referenced dll. When using the sample code to send a email (as described in site) the IDE vb6 crashes.

Any Guess??

I tested and did not find a problem. Post your sample code...

I found the following:

  • If you compile to a .exe (File-->Make Project1.exe...) and then run the exe separately, there is no problem.
  • There is no problem with the ActiveX in referencing it and using it in design.
  • When running from within the VB6 IDE, the VB6 IDE crashes when the program exits.

I don't know why this could cause the VB6 IDE to crash on program exit. The Chilkat ActiveX is working properly in all other environments (as far as I know).

I haven't been able to reproduce the problem in WinXP SP3 - What OS are you guys using?

I'm using Windows 7. On Windows 8 / 8.1 it's no longer possible to install/run VB6...

Is possible install vb6 on win7/win8/win8.1 http://nuke.vbcorner.net/Articles/VB60/VisualStudio6Installer/tabid/93/language/en-US/Default.aspx

See the video tutorial on YouTube (Windows 7 Ultimate): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPGSXTgvFNU

Interesting... In my vb6 IDE one project (big one) that uses Activex crashes when try to send email during executing the program inside the IDE. When build the executable the exe sends email normally. Some times the ide crashes when build the project, others none. I tried to use in other project only one form that uses the activex and in this case the IDE doesn't crashes and the activex sends the email normally. It seems that any other forms, controls, dlls, possibly are interfering with the activex/IDE. Unfortunately i don't have any idea how to use a debug program to use with VB6 IDE to try to find what component is causing this. Thank you for your assistance. Rogério.

Unfortunately this new version doesn't functions on my IDE. The problem persists. Maybe some other Activex on my project is interfering with your activex. I Don't Known. rogerio

I am unable to reproduce the crash. Please send me a VB6 project (that causes the problem) in a .zip, or make one available for download..
