I think the question is what version of VB do you have. There seems to be some bug in it that's not your fault, and there may be nothing you can do about it except get another copy of VB.

Be nice NoNeckJoe.. the first thing I wrote in VB was Yahtzee... and I knew nothing about the programming language or the interface.. its aimed to be easy, but it doesn't play nice a lot of the time.. *(VB, not my Yahtzee game )

What I mean is not to call the file <game> but <game.exe> when you compile it. It's a bit difficult to explain without actually showing you!

I don't have much experience in VB specifically, but when I have programming problems like this (ie. something very simple that should work, with no obvious solutions, usually at the compiling stage) sometimes I find that if I basically start all over from scratch, it works(sometimes). It's a pain, but when you have no other options... Anyway, just try testing your compiler, write and compile something else to see if it works. Hope I could help.

well i am glad it was fixed, but another thing that i noticed about vb is that if you name an exe the same name as the project, it can get confused.... but that was an older version of vb

i don't think that it happened on vb.

no, it most definitely happened with VB. if i can find it, i'll get you the version number. the patched it pretty quickly. this was prolly 2-3 years back, so i will see if i can find it.
