RE: GPF in module USER.EXE - I NEED HELP

Eduardo,
Your problem is that between Win95 and Win98 there is a major difference in where the OS system files execute in memory. You wrote your application in Win95, using VB6, inherently setting it to use a specific memory address to execute in. When you port the application to Win98, User.exe is using that memory address that your VB6 application wishes to use. Thus you get a GPF error. You will have to rewrite the application in Win98 to get around this problem, or try debugging the application to find where it actually accesses the memory address in question and attempt to point it to another memory address.

Hope this helps!

Mike
