Isn't the Manifest resource just a text file?

...and also, why is the help file nearly ten times the size of the program itself? It doesn't seem to contain that much info... :blink:

Indeed you are right. The Manifest is just an XML file but you also need a .bas file to add to your vb6 projects.

Also this app will create a .res file to add to you vb6 apps so that there would be no need to have a Manifest file in the same directory as the executable application. The resign for the huge sized help file is because I have added 18 jpg pictures. I’m also sorry if this help file does not meet your requirements

Many Thanks

Egg. :P

The big problem with manifest files is that option buttons are fully black so you can't see the text in it. And most of the time you get an error: System Error &H80070583 (-2147023485). The class doesn't exist.

Then there is another solution to put the option button in an image box, but if you want to change colors using the option buttons that is also not gonna work, with black backgrounds.

I still havn't found a solution for this, but i'm using Visual Basic 2005 now and that is fully XP Style compatible. I also think you can better step to Visual Basic 2005 because most of the programmers are programming in .NET, C of C++, so Visual Basic 2005 would be a better option as programmer ;) Or Java fully platform independent :sneaky:
