Hi Timo!

I really hope you can help or assist me.
One of my clients is using my VB6 app and it "hangs" randomly.

This started after i replaced MS Forms2 components with your editcontrols and ex. listview.(of course im not sure that yor controls are causing this :))

Is there any good tool to track or detect ehat exatly is causing this hang?
Client uses XP SP3.

You mean it doesn't react to user input anymore?
You could use WinDbg, Microsoft Symbol Server and the Debug symbols that come with my controls, to debug the application when it hangs. For best results, you should also generate debug symbols for the app itself.
