Version 5.00 was the first version of ProvideX tested for XP.  While the
majority of 4.23 functionality will work on XP there are likely a few things
that won't.  What you are describing is one of the featues that won't.

The problem you are having has to do with a change to the mouse sensitivity
to embedded child windows with title bars and the FlashWindows dll call
within the standard Windows API.  Changes were required within Pvx in order
to compensate for some differences within Windows XP.  This issue was
addressed in 5.00.

The majority of ProvideX applications will not suffer this problem as they
do not use child windows with title bars but rather use Dialogue boxes.
