    In my application I noticed that I could not disable one of the menuitems. Curiously it was the only one that had submenus.
    It failed on Windows but it worked on MacOS.
    So I decided to file a bug, but I discovered that there exists one since 2011:

    Feedback Case #19616

    If you have noticed it as well, please support this bug report. Thanks.

    Think it's a Windows issue, not Xojo.

    It seems it was not a Windows issue eventually.

    @Ramon S but it worked on MacOS.

    On macOS you should not disable a menu item even if all sub items are disabled:

    Keep menus enabled even when menu items are unavailable. It’s important for people to be able to browse the contents of all menus to learn where commands reside, even when those commands aren’t available.
