I have been using button objx OCX Version 18.104.22.168 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!
