TTimer does not work on user machines

My program uses the TTimer. On user machines the timer routine never
responds. No problems exist on the development  machine. Does someone
know te solution to this?

Please specify the machines you are referring to, and which OS they run

The user machines have a pentium and run either under Windows 95 or Windows 98.

Willem,
Have you tried creating a simple test program to make sure that the
problem is your timer?  An example would be a simple program that has a
timer set off on the click of a button with a MessageDlg in the timer
event.
Good luck,
John

Actually, updating a label's Content would be better.  If the user
forgets to increase the Timer interval, you could get tons of message
boxes before you knew what hit --
