Hi David,

As the saying goes: "Better late than never" -- let's
see if we can help you out with this.

1) screenMouseLoc on Mac doesn't work
-> if it's MacOSX, then you'll need RunRev >= 2.0

2) screenMouseLoc on VPC
-> I just tested this under Win2K and WinME, where it
works fine, so I think it's VPC ; unless it happens in
deployed apps as well?

Hope this gets you closer to solutions,

Jan Schenkel.
