Invisible tabs in Access 2013 runtime

1,263 Expert 1GB
A form I created that uses tabs seems to work fine on my development machine (Access 2007, fully patched). But two users that have Access 2013 runtime installed cannot see the tabs. They can see and work with the content of the tabs but they cannot see the tab control object, so they cannot click on any of the tabs.

I added some buttons to change tabs in the click event and they manage the navigation between tabs for now.

Anyone know what could be going on?

A pure guess.

Is the form too long for the other user's screen?

Otherwise I can't help

I think we'd see a scroll bar in that case, but we don't. Still, I'll ask them to change the resolution on their screen to see if that makes a difference. And I'll change it on mine too, maybe I can recreate the problem.

Changing resolution on my machine to match them does not make my machine develop the problem. Changing their machine to match my development machine's resolution does not make the problem disappear.

It just looks like Access 2013 Runtime will not show those tab controls.

The only thing I can think of is to see if changing the Style or BackStyle of the Tab Control and see if there is a change.
