thanks for the thoughts. I'll make a DB-25 to test with.
I've been playing with this problem for a long time. Across several platforms, NT, XP and now VISTA. Also several different installs on different Laptops. So far, the problem has followed the software.
My laptop is set up as dual boot so I try everything on Vista first, if it acts squirrelly then i pop over to XP and confirm it is a Vista problem.. So far so good. Problem is still there on both OS's.
Thanks for the thoughts.
I'm hoping some one else out there knows of a setting in the program or a registry hack I can do.
