: I think one problem has been solved.
: I solved the winsock problem by using the "netsh winsock reset catalog" in DOS.
: About the mid function in windows 2000, this problem only occurs in one specific program. I don't know what causes it...
: I noticed that normally if you type "mid" and then a "(" a tooltip popups but in the project where the mid function doesn't work there's no tooltip...
: If I run the program with a mid function anywhere in the code it pops up an error: "Can't find project or library"
: I'm not sure what this means...
: I use the mid function like this:
: tmpStr = Mid(Str, start, length)
: I think the project is too big to post the complete code
I find that the same thing happens with the Left and Right functions when there is a syntax or reference error in the code. Try compiling the code when you find that you're not getting the intellisense tip on basic built-in functions.
If that doesn't help, check the project's references to make sure none of them are marked MISSING:, and that you have the four standard components referenced:
Visual Basic for Applications
Visual Basic runtime objects and procedures
Visual Basic objects and procedures
