Calender control
VB Application containing Calender control MSCAL.OCX is not displaying dates properly on some machine.

Does anyone has the idea how to set it right?

What do you mean by not displaying dates properly?

Dates displayed on the Calender control MSCAL.OCX are shown as dots. Hence it is difficult to pick the date from calender.

I had this problem as well. It turned out that older versions of software wouldn't support mscal 9 for instance, i had to change it to the format of the calendar that it would handle.

ex: Office XP - Access = Cal Control 10
    Office 2000 - Access = Cal Control 9

If you open a page that has cal control 10 in Access 2000, it displays as all dots. Hopefully this helped.

I am having the same problem. I installed a VB 6.0 app on a pc running WinXP Home. The calendar control displays correctly on my development machine running WinXP Pro, but on the user's machine it is showing dots for the days of the week. Also, the month format is not the same as on the dev machine. If the month is set to long, the user gets the short month and vice versa. I'm using mscal.ocx v10.0.0.2601. The installation was clean and everything else works properly. Can anyone help?
