Hi all,

Hi Kevin;

   In order to help you, you should always list ...

  1. O/S version & build 
  2. PB version & build 
  3. TX control setting in the Application Object painter.
  4. Have you tried another PB dev machine?

Regards .. Chris

Hi Kevin .. thank you for trying this. That cured the other PB Developer's problem who had the same issue as you last year. I now suspect that it's your MS-Window environment. That can be easily verified by checking with your other PB developers. They should not have the same issue. If that is the case and its only your machine, before re-imaging - you might first like to try these DOS commands, as follows...

sfc /scannow

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

Well....I actually do not know what I did. So after the reinstall it was not working so I decided to work on other things and for some reason its working now. Thanks for your help in all this.

Maybe you forgot to reboot afterwards. That is awesome news Kevin! :-)
