Hi, I have a strange problem with my project, I recently added a XP button to some forms, and when I enter to some form runs fine, but when I stop the project the visual basic close, and then I need to re open my project. What could be the problem?
Thanks A lot.

How do you stop the program? Does it exit normally, or do you stop it via IDE controls? The IDE Stop button can cause problems because things might not shut down properly.

I am unfamiliar with the 'xp button', so I dont know what effect it may have on your program. Could you be more specific about what happens to the IDE? Do the toolbars still have mouse hover effects? Do all of the editing windows reappear? Is there any kind of error message? Do you have to kill the IDE with the task manager, or can you exit it cleanly?

Ok, step by step:
1.- First I open my project and all is OK, no Errors.
2.- When I Run with "F5" runs fine.
3.- When I press some XP button run all the procedure assigned
4.- When I stop the project with whatever procedure to stop, my project go out and crash with out errors.
5.- If I dont press any XP buttons all is OK, the project dont crash.
What could be the strange problem?
Class and Library attached.

Can you elaborate on what an "XP Button" is? I am not familiar with this either.

By elaborate, I meant that you should not cause me to have to hunt down the downloaded control that you are using - we know much of the standard control library, but cannot stay on top of all of the free 3rd party libraries available. Luckily, Google worked in your favor.
The way that this control works is through subclassing. You cannot stop the program in the IDE without a crash. The program must end cleanly by unloading all forms. Any other 'messy' stop method will cause major issues with the IDE because of the way that subclassing works.
