You need to be a bit more specific on what the program was doing when you encountered the GPF.

Most of the time, most applications written in VB 16bit operate properly.

If the developer of the software written in VB used any third party products, there are instances where some routines in 3rd party products conflict with 32-bit Windows prodeedures. You need to contact the original developer. Some of these issues were dealing with direct calls to the hard drive, and other 'low-level' calls.

If you wrote the code, then check with the original vendors of the software for any upgrades.

Another issue of consideration is that the newer operating systems ( Win9x and up) are not as tolerant for minor code errors. If you can obtain the source code,you may be able to re-write the routines to deal with errors in a proper fashion.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Having seen the dreaded vbrun*.dll error before, I could say check the following. If you have a backup of critical files, i.e. sysbckup, ect. You may find a older version of this file in there, also, I seem to remember a updated file on the microsoft support site, http://support.microsoft.com/support > search KB > keyword:vbrun*. As always, anytime you change a file, rename the original file, so if you have any problems, you can boot into DOS, and rename the file back, if the new one makes the system crash, or the problem worse. alos, when you change core dll files, like this one, you usualyy have to do it from DOS, since it will be in use if in windows, and will get a share violation. Hope this helps.
