Button Objx, VS2008 and Windows 7/Vista

    I have been using button objx OCX Version 2.0.0.20 for many years (using C++ and VB6). Recently I moved to Visual Studio 2008 and Windows 7. Although it works fine at run-time I am unable to open the VS Dialog Editor for a dialog that contains the control, it crashes Visual Studio. It still works fine with VS2008 on XP, and Visual Studio 6 with Windows 7 (and VB6 on Windows 7). I saw that there was a similar problem last year with InputPro and Vista  ("Unable to use InputPro in VS2008", 04-18-2009), that has been fixed.

    I presume this is the same problem - any chance of a  fix for Button Objx? I have used it extensively and now wonder what to do. I have raised this on MSDN Forums (Visual C++ General), and they suggest (of course) that I raise it here. I hope this isn't the end of the road!

    Thanks

    <FONT size=3 face="Times New Roman">Currently the Button works only when you set the target CPU in Visual Studio to x86. If you set this to x64 then it will not work.</FONT>


    <FONT size=3 face="Times New Roman">You can install the Button on 64 bit Operating system however the target CPU in Visual Studio should always be x86.</FONT>

    Do you mean the button doesn't work at all with x64 processors? Or is it 64-bit Windows?

    Thanks

    Dear, I have experienced the same problem, so a quick Google search brought me to this site, I am migrating from windows 7 x32 to windows 10 x64, and I have problems with the installation of my "Button Objx", I did not have any problem with "Spread", but "Button Objx" does not let me install it, I think it is a problem of 64-bit architecture. I do not know if it is possible to install it in another way.

    I already have VB6 and VS2008 installed.

    PD: Sorry for my English, I'm not used to using it.
