SYMPTOMS

When using a display driver that provides 64K color (16 bits per pixel), Visual Basic version 3.0 and Lotus Notes Desktop both act as running in a monochrome environment.

CAUSE

The manner in which these applications detect the color mode results in incorrectly assuming that only monochrome color is available.

RESOLUTION

Use a color mode other than 64K. 24-bit color does not exhibit this problem.
