    Hello, I have a project with Active Report 2 in VB6.
    If the user is running XP the report works fine, but if the user is running Windows 7 the report is messy, as you can see in the screenshot attached. In Windows 7 the date is written with Asiatic characters, some lines and frames are very different, and the Common Dialog control icon is printed too! Any help or advise is much appreciated.

    I'm not seeing this behavior in a quick sample I created.



    Can you provide an RPX or RDF file of this report? If you are not comfortable posting the files on the forum, you can send them in to powersupport@grapecity.com



    Additionally, which build of ActiveReports 2 are you using?



    Thanks,

    Jon

    Hello,



    We have a project with Active Report 2 in VB6. There are some problems, if the user running Windows 7,

    If user changes Screen View Setting to middle (%125) it shows messy characters. With normal screen settings (%100) there is no problem.



    I send you some screenshot for it. Do you have any patch for this Problem or how we can solve this problem?



    Thanks a lot for your help.
