Deploying my .net widows forms app

Well, 'deploying' may be a stretch, I only have one user.

Anyway, I built a tiny little app that runs some reports.  You select a few parameters from some list boxes, and select a directory to dump the reports into.  It goes to the database and builds the reports.

It works fine on my machine, of course.  Or I wouldn't try to run it on her machine.  The security settings aren't the problem - everything is configured properly.

But the list boxes (and one drop down list) appear to be empty.  I just have them filled using the items property.  Nothing fancy at all.

If I click the browse button (which launches a standard dialog to select the directory to dump the reports to), then exit the dialog (either by selecting a directory or cancelling), I can click in the list box to reveal each item one by one. 

I tried on another machine, and I get the same results.

Do you have any exception handling in your code?

Yes, but not for populating those listboxes.  The listboxes are filled with a static list that I created in the property editor.  There is nothing fancy going on here, it's a very quick and dirty in-house application.
