The following text display problem occurs in Visual Basic for MS-DOS when using an ATI Ultra VGA card with a NEC MultiSync 3FGx monitor. The letter "H" in the word "Hello" is printed in the upper right hand corner of the monitor and the letters "ello" are printed in the upper left hand side of the monitor.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Standard and Professional Editions of Microsoft Visual Basic for MS-DOS version 1.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
Steps to Reproduce the Problem
- Start VBDOS.EXE.
Add the following code to the default code window:
SCREEN 10 PRINT "Hello"
- Press the F5 key to run. If you have a ATI Ultra VGA card with a NEC MultiSync 3FGx monitor you may see the letter "H" displayed in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
- If you try to add a LOCATE statement to the example above, you may also get unpredictable results.
