I am developing an app to keep track of all my movie files ant to also play them with either WMP or Gom from inside the App. By: mwrob Date: 2010-07-20 I followed the instructions and was able to get VB6 installed just fine on a Windows 7 64 bit system.However, I am unable to get service pack 6 installed.I've gotten around each one but this one now has me stumped. Could the fact that I didn't shut it off before starting your process have caused the computer to lock up and require a hard shut down at step 10? You MUST also use the regsvr32file in the Sys WOW64 folder (not the one in the System32 folder) to register the files.The app uses an Access Database and has lots of forms using ADO data controls. Thanks for your help By: Forty Pound Head Date: 2010-06-23 I am currently attending HP techforum in Las Vegas, and as such am currently experiencing limited connectivity. Some things I ran into that I didn't see mentioned is that when registering OCX and DLL files the file MUST be placed in the C: Windows Sys WOW64 directory. One other tip is to ALWAYS install everythig as "administrator".By: raycomp Date: 2010-07-10 Thanks for ht useful information.One problem I sometimes need to register 3rd party ocx files but in most cases Windows 7 32bit does not allow copying them to Windowssystem32 for registering but place the in the incompatible folder.This process has been tested on Windows 7, both 32 bit and 64 bit, with no problems.
Right after agreeing to the license terms, I get a dialog box that says "Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 6 Setup was not completed properly." By: Forty Pound Head Date: 2010-07-20 Have you turned off UAC during the installation?
I'm still having a few problems with the INet transfer control - using it to transfer files via FTP, it seems to hang for a minut or so every now and then. By: nfordatfph Date: 2010-02-09 Thanks for the tip on fixing slugishness. I have a problem with large forms in the IDE in Win7.
FWIW - using manifest files (as in XP) works in Windows 7 - giving the app the windows 7 look. Peter By: badbrad Date: 2009-11-20 Missed one thing.... It gets to something like 1000x800 and won't let me drag it any bigger.
Let me know what OCX's you are concerned about, and I'll try testing them out on my installation, and see if they work.

What happens on some of the forms (not all of them) is when I tryh to do a requery on an a recordset object i.e. But I'll look into this for you when I get back to my room. I found that I also had to modify the properties of the VB6.
