A repository error occurs after halting execution in break-mode edit.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This has been fixed with Visual Studio Service Pack 1.

For additional information about the Visual Studio 97 Service Pack 1, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a new ActiveX control.
  2. View-code of control and place the following text:

          Option Explicit
          Private Myfunc1
          Private Sub UserControl_InitProperties()
              Myfunc1 = "Hi"
          End Sub
          Public Property Let Myfunc1(btest)
              ' notice marz does not exist (should be btest)
                    Myfunc1 = marz
          End Property
          Public Property Get ftest()
              Myfunc1 = Myfunc1
          End Property
  3. Close the control.
  4. Add a new standard.exe project.
  5. Place the control on the form. You'll get a compile error on the assignment in the Myfunc1 property let:

    "variable not defined"

  6. Halt execution (run->end).


  • No error


  • You get the following error:

    "An error occurred getting a property of a Visual Basic Control. Error code 800A9C68 Repository Add-in for Visual Basic is shutting down"
