Issue in a boxed app when changing "Regional Settings" on Windows 10

Post by geche » Mon Feb 01, 2021 10:39 am

Hi,

I'm encountering a problem with a boxed app when changing regional settings in Windows 10 to some regions like English (Europe), English (Germany), English (Austria), etc.

The application start, the window doesn't show but it appears in the process list of the task manager.

My application is a windows app. Coded in VB6 with several OCXs. I've created a .net app with only a window and a button and I have the same issue.

Doing some tests, I found that happens when checking "Enable Registry Virtualization". If I don"t check this option the app launch correctly and the window appears.

I need Registry virtualization because I have to register the ocxs of my app.

Could you help me? I can give you the "test.exe" app and the EVB project file.

Thank you

Gustave

Hi, can you try to exclude from virtualization all registry paths except HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT?
Only HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT is needed to register activex libraries.
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT should be virtual, other registry branches - real, the settings should look as following:

Hi,

I'm sorry but it doesn't work.

If you select, for exemple, English (Europe) in the regional settings of Windows 10 and you check "Enable Registry Virtualization" (no matter which path is virtual or real), the application launches, appears in the process list of the task manager but any window is shown.
That happens with any application.
If you uncheck "Enable Registry Virtualization" the application runs correctly.

I've attached a zip file with a test application. This application is a .NET application without any activex library.

Thank you for your help.

Gustave
