If you change the decimal separator by choosing the International icon from the Windows Control Panel, you can get the error "Errors during load. Refer to ..." when loading a form that was saved as text.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with Microsoft Visual Basic version 2.0 for Windows. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Visual Basic version 3.0 for Windows.
From the Windows Control Panel, you can change the decimal separator for numbers by choosing the International icon. By changing the decimal separator, you can affect the way decimal numbers look when output by statements such as the PRINT method.
However, if you change the decimal separator, you may get the following error when you load a form that had was saved as text (the default): "Errors during load. Refer to" followed by the name of a log file that contains the error information.
When a form is saved as text, all information about the form is saved to the file, this includes all the properties that were changed from their default. Any properties that where written as a decimal number, such as the FontSize property, may not be recognized if you have changed the decimal separator.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
NOTE: Although the loading problem was corrected in Visual Basic version 3.0, the Calculator program is not designed ot accept a comma (,) in place of a decimal point. Using a comma causes a "Type mismatch" error.
