VB6 Addin vrs Toolbars
Date: 06.21.15 - 4:00pm
So I just lost an entire day of debugging on this one..
If your vb6 IDE starts loosing menu bars or command buttons its probably because of a bad addin. Specifically you/they are forgetting to delete a menu item that they added.
Things get totally screwy everything disappears eventually and you have to keep resetting them which is super annoying.
I forgot I had added a new feature to my addin, so had to search and destroy from scratch. it was super painful. I ended up adding error handling everywhere and extra checks everywhere but ultimately it was something i was totally overlooking the whole time.
Sometimes computers suck!
