Issues with starting a VB6 application with Skype for Business running on a Windows 7 machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are having issues with running a VB6 application.  When attempting to start the application it will not respond and 'hang'.  Any time that this happens if you completely exit out of Skype for Business then you are able to login to the application successfully.  Our developers debugged the application and said that it seems to hang when the font "Powervt.fon" is loaded.

    We have a 3rd party app that does the VT100 emulation and fonts (dart) as well as a 3rd party app that does the ssh encryption (weonlydo).

    It only freezes on new connections.  Once you have (exited out of Skype and) connected thru the VB application you are able to start up Skype and work with both applications running at the same time.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • You should find a VB6 or less forum for assistance.

    If you have questions about VB.Net then this would be an appropriate Forum.
