Visual Basic 6 was originally released in 1998. It was part of a larger, paid program. I don't think you'll find any legal downloads for free. You might be able to just install the runtimes, but I can't say for sure.

Visual Basic is paid deverloper software (and its not even cheap.... it can set you back a few 100$.... you can download some components for free for VB6 but this program really seems to be looking for the full VB6 installation. are you sure the software you have installed is compatible with Win7?

Visual Basic 6.0 Support Lifetime

Supporting and/or shipping Visual Basic 6.0 runtime binaries on Windows Vista/Windows Server 2008/Windows 7/Windows 8 does not change the support policy for the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE or Visual Studio 6.0 IDE as a whole. Those products will move out of extended support in April 8, 2008.
Further details on the support policy for the Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual Studio 6.0 products can be found at Details on the support lifecycle of Microsoft products can be found at As a part of this support lifecycle, Microsoft will continue to support the Visual Basic 6.0 runtime on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 for the support lifetime of those operating systems. This means, for example, that the Visual Basic 6.0 runtime will be supported on Windows Server 2003 until June, 2008 for Mainstream Support and June, 2013 for Extended Support.
