Windows 7: vb6 app does not work on win 7

vb6 app does not work on win 7

Hi,

before you point me to other threads I have to say I read them all in last days

This is MY problem:

there is this huge vb6 app that worked fine on XP, now when run on win 7 on half PCs is working on the other half it just does not.

If I install vb6 on the pc that the app is not working it will work fine after.

But I cannot install vb6 and should not install it on all those that it does not work, could be more than 200 installations.

I uninstalled vb6 and tried to check which dlls or ocxs are needed, I copied those from:

Support Statement for Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008

into system32 and syswow64 but still no luck.

I wanted to install vb6 service pack 6 but could not installed it successfully,

I could install vbrun60sp6.exe, the vb6 runtime, but it was not enough, the app is not working.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Adrian

yes I ried it, I do not know what .Net is there but as I say on same build is working, same .Net there...

I think I would need a pack with all dlls and ocxs used by vb6, I would not want to include in the build an vb6 complete installation, seems a bit dumb

The dlls are read by the common runtime lang. and maybe you should just google it for VB cannot work without it..

I installed vbrun60sp6.exe, the vb6 runtime, but it seems is not enough, there must be other dlls or ocxes that are in the vb6 installation and not into runtime?! Strange but with the runtime alone the app is not working on this win 7 64 pc, and was working before uninstalling vb6

Is all the Nodes 64bit? You might have to get a different setup for 64bit.
