Occasionally I find that Control Panel returns a blank screen after I load the DssHost with no manifest. I cannot figure out why this is occuring. It will flash the search box briefly and then go blank. All the other links work fine and I can even access a service ok. It seems to return to normal after I reboot my machine, but I would love to know what is causing this so I can avoid doing whatever I am doing that is making it *** out. Is the Content Directory cache getting lost somehow

Thanks,

Sara

Hi Henrik,

I am using IE 6, but I just figured out the problem. The reason it seemed to vary was because it depended on what size IE was. If the windows gets to a certain size, the body of Control Panel disappears and then re-appears when you expand the window. I am doing screenshots for the MSRS book and MS Press wants me to do that in 800x600. So, when I am in that mode, or if the screen is small (like a quarter of the screen), the control panel dissapears. I have seen the problem on both Vista and XP, btw. It is no big deal, but I wanted to say something in case someone else got this and was VERY frustrated since everything appears to be working - it is just a rendering issue.

Thanks and I hope this helps someone else.
