Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation
  • Uninstallation
  • Creating, saving and opening projects and forms
  • Compiling and running projects
  • Autocomplete with attributes of various objects (e.g. the Text attribute of the TextBox control)

What does not

  • During installation, an error box with the message "RemoveFontResource failed" shows up at various points.
  • IntelliSense does not appear to be working properly; when MsgBox( is typed in the code window, a blank pop-up appears. In addition, attempting to remove MsgBox( without first completing the statement and running the project first causes Visual Basic to freeze. This may be related to bug 23726.


"winetricks vcrun6" was used to install the Visual C++ 6 components required, and a 32-bit wineprefix set to Windows 98 was used in order to allow installation.

What was not tested

Anything not mentioned above.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
