A resource leak can occur when using DBGrid control version 1.0.093 with the Visual Basic 4.0a 16-bit. The leak only occurs when you run the Design Environment Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11.


You can reduce the resource leak by closing each open form before ending Visual Basic.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this bug and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. From Program manager, in the Help menu in About Program Manager, choose About Program Manager. Note the system resources listed.
  2. Start and end Visual Basic 4.0a without saving the default project. From the Help menu in Program Manager, choose About Program Manager and note the system resources listed.
  3. Start Visual Basic and add two DBGrid controls to Form1.
  4. Resize each DBGrid control at least twice.
  5. End Visual Basic without saving the project.
  6. From the Help menu in Program Manager, choose About Program Manager. Note that the amount of system resources is reduced.
