I have an .avi file in a VB6 program. It is displayed and runs correctly on the desktop computer I use to develop but it (the .avi) doesn't apear on my VB form when I run the program on Laptops. Can anyone help me with this mystery?

Most likely, the laptop does not have the correct CODEC for the AVI file.

I would start by making sure what applications are registered on the Desktop for opening AVI files. One of them is supplying the CODEC that the desktop is using to play the AVI.

As a side note, starting with XP SP1, Microsoft no longer supplied or supported a CODEC that some AVI files use.

The simple fix for that issue is to install Quick Time or WinAmp.
