Have you tried removing Nero as the file (.dat) association? Go to Control Panel -> Folder Options. Scroll down the list of registered file extenstions looking for your .dat. When you find it, highlight it and in the lower window you should see what type of program is associated with opening it and running it. Try changing that to VB6.
yer i know how to change the type of file, but at school when i save it as a .dat file the file icon changes to a unknonw file, at home i save as a .dat file and it comes up as a nero file, i dont think its ment to open with anything as visual basic reads from the file, u only open itwith notepad to edit it, anyhelp?
