  • Welcome Mike Mayerhoffer

    Mike has offered to contribute code and/or time as health permits.

    Welcome in, Mike.

    Rod, if the Windows OS SDK would be useful, Mike has a reference to them. I've downloaded them... about 3 gig once extracted. Lot of information there, but it's the real Windoze Bible.

    Welcome Mike!

    I will be checking that OS SDK before continuing as I have been.

      Thanks Stan and Rodney!
      Hi everyone, I do not know if you viewed my post, I made a VB-PB converter about the same time I made Makedtt.
      A little background ...
      97 -98 I made a bunch of hacks for VS to implement add-ins my way making VS my IDE for everything. I converted Makeddt and vb-pb to stand alone products. I gave away Makedtt and thought of selling vb-pb for a small fee. I had a dozen or so people try it. Well ....VB lets you write sloppy code... this was more than I wanted to deal with at the time.
      I thought maybe just let it slide for a while and make a preprocessor type parser and be good to go. A lot time went by and I did nothing with it and here I am now.
      Just starting to organize 25 years of projects, code snips and such. Sooner or later I will run into it. Earlier stuff is on tape and is taking for ever.
      Putting an outline together the best I can recall from a decade ago on how I went about it. I'll keep my eyes open for helpful files in my archives.
      That's all I have to ramble about at this time. I need to read and catch up here in the forum...if you have a question on what, how or why on the tool I made, fire away. It's been along time and will give it my best shot to recall details or draw a blank
      A dozen what.

        Mike,

        Welcome aboard Mike!!!

        VB lets you write sloppy code... this was more than I wanted to deal with at the time.
        Can't speak for anyone else, but this one aspect of VB has plagued me in a big way. The only consistent thing about VB is its inconsistency.

          Thanks John !

          VB is a real peace of art, no doubt about that.
          A dozen what.

            Mike,

            Not to mention a real pain in the neck and various other parts of the anatomy.
