BUG: Application Does Not Restore Window from Minimized Icon
Article ID: 150201 - View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q150201
On Windows NT 3.51, forms created with Microsoft Visual Basic do not restore their previous window state automatically when ALT+TAB is pressed or the Task List is used to activate the application. For instance, they remain minimized. However, if two subsequent attempts are made to activate the application by pressing ALT+TAB or using the Task List, the application restores its former state.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be an issue in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. Microsoft is researching this issue and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
