    VB6 - Automation manager - removing it (VB6)

    Each time I run my VB6 project, a small window pops up, Automation Manager, no doubt essential to the inner workings of stuff.

    However, when my application has completed and quit, I'm left with the Automation Manager on the task bar.

    Is there any way to have this doo-dad self-remove whern I'm done with it?

    Right now it's an annoyance more than a problem. I'd like to know more about the environment as i go on.

    I've never seen such an animal. When oes it pop up, when you run the project from VB6 or when it is executed, or what? And what operating system are you running? Also what SP of VB?

    Just as a matter of interest, is the same project as that which changes the screen backgorind ?.

    If so when I run your code no such Automation manager appears.

    Not on my machine. Maybe it's that "warm" copy of VB you're using. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    I have attached a BMP snapshot of it.

    running? Also what SP of VB?

    I load VB6, File Open and select the project, double-click the one module.bas and then tap the F5 key to run it. The Application manager manifests itself, then minimizes and flits down to the task bar at the bottom of the screen, from where I recalled it to take the Alt-PrtScr snapshot.

    Thank you Francois, and my apologies to all who have looked in vain.

    I plead old age, and a certain unfamiliarity with typing 2002010120020101.bmp this early in the day. It's not so bad for those across the pind; they have a five- or six-hour head start on the rest of us (grin)

    Yes it is. It's not a big issue right now, as it's really only for this week. If I sign a contract and start doing this 25 hours a day I'll really want to hit it on the head.


    I'm brand spanking new at the VB6 environment; I've compiled and run code before, but only on other machines. A great deal of my curiousity arises from not knowing what the real people do, how they have set up their VB6 environment.

    I'm where some of my clients are with Windows ("You can DOUBLE click on an icon?!!!)

    Could well be. It goes back on Thursday.

    I'm always suspicious of copies, and have seen too much time wasted in the past on people struggling with bootleg. My supplier is basically honest, and if I get the contract I'll be purchasing a regular full-blown, teabags-and-all, copy through him, shrink-wrapped with only one set of fingerprints on the shrink-wrap, and none on the case.

    It's not my intention to have loungers waste time on a possibly shoddy installation, but I'm so new to the environment that I have no way of knowing what's regular and what's not.

    I'm very much in the state of the novice Word user who hasn't got far enough to know about Tools, Options, File Locations, Documents.


    I have alreadydeleted the SourceSafe doo-dad. It is probably a good thing for project control, but just gets in the way when i want to work through a hundred or so modules one after the other. Two down. 98 to go.

    Chris,

    I wouldn't get rid of sourcesafe. It can be very useful.

    They way I use it is to check everything out, then work on it on the drive until I come to a point I'm happy with. I'll copy the whole project back into sourcesafe at that point.

    I can go back to any version at any time. If I discover anything not working which used to work, I can run a side-by-side compare to see what has changed. It's a very stable product, and used correctly, very useful.

    Re: VB6 - Automation manager - removing it (VB6)

    I'm sure I agree with all your comments. However, given my short time frame, and that my mission to Thgursday 9am is to determine that all the code CAN be compiled, i don't have to worry too much about comparisons. If we go ahead, I'll set up SourceSafe again and start using it.
