 Creating 16 bit vb4.0 app under '95 will not run under win 3.1

I ran across an interesting situation...  I created a program using vb4.0 in
windows '95.  I went to run the program on a different computer running
windows 3.1  and guess what... I got an error "OUT OF MEMORY".  I tried
another windows 3.1 machine, and another ...  always with the same
error.  I re-compiled the program underneath win 3.1 and it went away...
Go figure...

Hi,
        I have a similar (not sure about that ?) problem with VB3PRO
written on Win95. It just won't work on Win 3.1. I had a few 'Out of
memory' messages and some errors that just don't show up on Win95. Since
finding a Win 3.1 machine that runs VB3 will not be very easy for me, I
would like to ask you if your Win 3.1 compiled program runs on Win 95
(which is essential for me).

        Thanks for posting this observation, you might have found the
solution (and how simple that one was) to a problem nobody could solve.

Recompiled the program under Win 3.1??  As in, "just install VB4-16 on
your Win 3.1 machine" ?  Or as in, "just re-create your app under
VB 3.0" ?  Either way, some problems just don't go away!  Take mine,
for example:

image1.picture=loadpicture(combo1.text)

This crashes everything but VB4 32-bit.  I wrote it on VB3/WFW3.11, and it ran.
I saved it as VB4-16 bit under NT and it got wonky.  I moved it back to
VB3/WFW3.11 and it still won't run.  I moved it to Win '95 VB4-16 and
it is no go.  I moved it to VB4 32-bit/Win 95 and it runs like a dream.

I think I accidently compiled it under VB4 32-bit at one point (instead of
16-bit, and I may even have saved it as 32-bit code, if there is such a thing
apart from code that makes 32-bit calls....)  But it definitely wasn't
healed by moving to Win 3.1x/VB3!

Regards.

Came to think of it, why don't you try loadpicture(cstr(combo1.text)) ?
