Windows 7: Software issues with 7

Software issues with 7

Can anyone help me find a way to install Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows 7? Visual Basic 6.0 works on Windows XP when I installed it at that OS. I had to dual boot 7 with XP just to use that particular programming language. But eventually, a conflict between 7 and XP arose which resulted to a booting problem with any of the two. So dual booting is no longer an option for me just to use VB6. I was at school earlier when a classmate of mine showed me his laptop which runs on Windows 7 and has a working Visual Basic 6 in it. I was surprised to see that VB6 works on Windows 7. Here I am at home using a desktop computer which runs on Windows 7 Ultimate but am having trouble installing VB6 in it.

Also, after using Perfect Optimizer and Registry Easy on 7, I had corrupted folders under the library folder in 'My Documents'. It seems to be a dismembered registry key resulted to this. Can anyone help me on these software issues?

try running the installer in xp-compatibility mode.

right-click on the installer >> properties >> compatibility tab >> tick 'run this program...' box.

i'm afraid i can't help with the bad library folders, but i'm sure someone else can.

This method won't work. I've already tried it.

It looks like a Virtual Box to me. It looks interesting though. I'll go check this one out. Thanks! ^________________^
