  • Do you have the service packs installed?
    Try to Run Vb6 under compatiblity mode / or run it as administrator and see if that resolves your problem

    btw I highly suggest you to move from VB6 to VB.NET for the long run. :).

  • Thank you Ananda,
    i did what you suggest, install the vb6 with sp6...no change...
    it seems like the win 7 missing the Supplemental language support wich can be found under Regional and Language Option in Win Xp,
    and there we could add the  files for right-to-left lanuages.
    i think we have to look for somthing like that in Win 7...?
    Thank You

  • Ram did you ever find a solution to the problem ?
    I'm suffering from it as well. All VB apps (not just the IDE) are missing right to left support.
    I tried installing Hebrew MUI, didn't help as well.

  • Hi Ram,
    Wanted to let you know that I opened a support incident on this matter today.
    Apparently it's already an open bug since September.
    Here's hoping it will be fixed soon.

    i am programming on windows XP vb6 applications. and i am having the same problem with the RTL in windows 7.

    now i want to install the hotfix . how shuold i install the hotfix, should i install it on the computer with the windows 7 (not the one i write my application, the one i run it on) and than all my vb6 application that run on this computer will work?

    should i do something in my code or the installation of the hotfix is enough?
