Windows 7: Program failed to compile after VB6 installation

Program failed to compile after VB6 installation

Hello! Today, my friend promised me to install VB6 on my laptop. The installation was unsuccessful. My antivirus did not detect any malicious file or whatsoever. I opened DEV-C++ and an error message appeared saying. It says that I need to insert disk. Also, if I am trying to compile using MinGW 4.8.1, it will display much error that is almost unbearable to see. It will pop up continuously every time you click "abort", "try again", or even "ignore". I tried reinstalling DEV-C++ But it doesn't fix the problem. Also I haven't tried compiling using TDM-GCC since it brought me some logical errors to my C programs. I also tried checking system restore but there are no restore points created.

What should I do?

What do you mean by VB6? Is it Virtual Box or what?

I believe he means Visual Basic 6.
