Disable desktop composition

Applicable to Vista and Seven only.

You can check the flag Disable desktop composition for VB6.exe.

In practice, the new Aero interface will be disabled when you start VB6.exe.

This is recommended because Visual Basic 6 isn't compatible with the Aero interface, therefore if you leave it enabled when you move a control on the form the action would be unbearably slow.

When you close all Vb6.exe instances, the Aero interface is automatically enabled again, everything is automatic and transparent to the user.


To enable the Disable desktop composition, using the corresponding command from the File menu.

Of course, you can yourself to activate/deactivate this option manually from the context menu of Vb6.exe:

- Right click on the file VB6.exe
