    Help, my zipstrip has disappeared! last seen on my desktop!


    On a GUI desktop that gets automated screen pops from a CORBA/DDE backend.
    Zipstrip is located on the desktop at the top of the screen. When the pop
    occurs the zipstrip scrolls off the top of the screen and repaints in a default
    position. Problem: If a user leaves their mouse pointer at the top of the
    screen when the zipstrip is trying to repaint in the default position it
    disappears. It just never repaints but I can still see it in the Task List.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks...

    kill and restart that app. if its still messed up, find the file that stores
    last position (may be in registry but usually in ini or other file) and move
    it manually by changing the offsets. Else call and complain about this wonderful
    "feature"...

    Because the gui is written in c++ and I suspect some the issue involves MFC.
