    Is Vista loaded on the machine that this is happening on?

    Re: Method ~ of object ~ failed in VB6

    I am having Visual Studoio SP5 and.
    But I got the solution for my problem and able to embedded a manifest file to my exe

    "http://www.***********/vistaadmin.html"

    Fabiovaz you can also search for some third party resource editor and can create and embedded your resource file using that tool.

    Re: Method ~ of object ~ failed in VB6

    You dont need to use a third party resource editor. Just use the one with VB 6. Specify the proper Id and your set.

    I dont see how this relates to the manifest file because if you were running SP-6 it may be fixed. I installed VS 6 with SP-6 and did not have this issue.

    Marking your entire app to run as administrator is not a good idea as its a security concern and Randem did not write that xml file, Microsoft did.

    Re: Method ~ of object ~ failed in VB6

    Hi rob,

    My application required admin privlidges thats why I added a manifest for admin privlidges .Still i am getting that error in VB6 IDE for resource editor ... But I had a deadline so I have used a third party Res Editor and thats why I suggested to use a 3rd party res editor to get things faster ... I didnt mean to provide admin privlidges (its just an example) ... it was just a suggestion no other intensions.

    So, did this third party Resource Editor solve your problem?

    You elevated the permissions required for your aplication, not of the VB 6 IDE. You can add a manifest file for VB6.EXE too as I use.

    Actually my requirement was to embedded an manifest to my vb6 exe so I used that 3rd party resource editor to embedded the manifest because my VB6 editor was giving problem.

    Yes HACK that third party resource solved my problem

    If you add the manifest file to the vb ide you can startup your ide and use its resource editor with no issues.

    Ps, dont forget to Resolve your thread from the Thread tools menu since its now solved.

    You are Missing the Microsoft Button Editor DLL Thats why it shows that message and that the icon in the toolbar is invisible, It also affects the Menu Creator add-in with the Menu Extended add-in.
    Link: http://www.dllme.com/dll/files/commtb32_dll.html

    EDIT: Put dll in same Directory as VB6.exe.
    Don't forget to register it afterwards.
