VBPs compile at command prompt, runs fine, VBG doesn't work

Hi All,

I have a project which was previously in one VBP that I have broken
into multiple projects. I can successfully compile all of the separate
DLLs and OCXs and build them into an application.

The problem is that when I try to edit all simultaneously in VB using
a project group file, I get no end of problems.

At the moment I have two choices, neither of which is feasible:

1) No Compatibility
Remove all dlls, ocxs entirely, unregister them, rebuild in the
correct order. Run EXE. Works. Pain if I want to actually write code,
since I've now lost my IDE and de*.

2) Binary Compatibility
remove all dlls, ocxs entirely, set all projects to bin compatibility.
recompile all in the correct order. i think this actually worked in
the ide. major drama if i want to (heaven forbid) change a function's
arguments: go out, recompile every single file again. re-enter ide.

if i try to set the binary compatibility to a Stub.vbp, which i
recompile 7 or 8 times with No Compatibility set (to get new classid
and typelib ids), containing a single Stub.Cls with one method Public
Sub Stub(). Then, when I set binary comp for each project to a
different stub file (to avoid overlapping the same magic numbers), I
get a cyclic reference error. Clearly this is bogus since I was
successfully able to compile and run the project without compatibility

Is there any way to get this to work!!

All help greatly appreciated.

1. w2k: runas command doesn't work with /user:user but work with /user:domain\user

I found a strange problem with 'runas' command.

If I use '/user:user app' command line option, the application will failed
to be started by runas, the error is:

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click on OK to
terminate the application.

If I use '/user:domain\user app', the application will be started properly.

If I add 'user' to 'Domain Admins', then the 1st one will also work.

I wrote a program which does the similar thing as runas, it failed with the
same error. What was done in the program is:




This is on W2K SP2.

Any suggestions on what might be the problem? Thanks.
