My Problem sounds identical. Name of network and computer names match,
I have internet on both, map shows both of my network computers,
but when I click on the XP entry I get Invalid Host Name. TYVM!!

My problem turned out to be the Norton Firewall.
I'm running Norton 360.
NVM nailed it.
Norton firewall off works.
Norton firewall on invalid host name.
As we say around here in LA (that's Lower Alabama)

I'm running Norton 360 which is a bit different.
I had to create a general rule in the exceptions file
and put it on top of the list to allow the other computer
access through the Norton Firewall.
Everything seems to be working now!!!

I hope you can help. My Linux MYSQL 3.23.52 database server is working OK generally. However, in a database I have a field name that ends with a # (hash UK as opposed to £ which is a pound UK) i.e. If I "select * from emptable" it works fine and the empnumber# field is listed correctly with all the other fields.

I am still struggling with this problem of getting my 2 list boxes to show the initials items as being selected on the first time that I go to the Tab with the boxes on them. I am reading from my database multiple bit columns with true or false and using the listbox.SetSelected( index, true); but it still does not show the first time on the last tab. It is like the control is never redrawn with the highlighted items. Thanks, Wade

I can get a dump. I can send it in to M$. I can inspect it but cannot get it in my hands so I can not post it here and get comments and/or answers. Can I get hold of that dump somewhere? Is it all in memory or is a file written somewhere on the failing machine's HD? The application does not get to the first line of user code. It is completely repeatable. I have repeated it over and over and sent in the dump several times.
