I have removed .NET and PhoneControl,
Run windows update to install .NET SP1
I have noticed that the minimise/exit buttons are missing in Phone Control and also in Designer the small grey drop-down arrow next to the Background image properties is missing, instead there is a small square black box.
I have also change permissions on all folders to ensure it is not a rights issue.
The error in the log file has gone now that I have re-installed.
Any other suggestions as I would really like to get this working ?
Thanks - Paul
Paul, this sounds very strange. The images in PhoCo are one thing but the dropdown arrows belong to the system and will be drawn by system itself.
I'm still not sure whether your graphics card driver sucks or not. If you have to chance, you should try to run PhoCo on another machine (with another graphics card) or at least on one with a different driver version.
It works ok on my other P4 XP laptop.
I don't experience any problems with graphics in any other Windows software and can happily play DVD's.
One strange thing is that when you open PhoneDesigner it shows a small preview of your desktop in the Background image area at the bottom left. This is displayed correctly. As soon as I open an existing PhoneControl image it changes to a white background.
Hope that helps.
I am more than willing to test anything you can suggest, even a small program you create if required.
I have been putting off XP SP2 but could try that if you think it may help ?
I can also send you a screen shot by e-mail if that will help to explain what I am seeing.
