    Re: Install VB6 on Windows 7

    Hello.
    I had no problems during installation. But some problems appeared later:

    1) In Project > Components > Controls Tab was impossible include "Microsoft Windows Common Contrlols 6.0 (mscomctl.ocx).
    Error message: 0x8002801C - "The file mscomctl.ocx was not registerable as an ActiveX Component"

    2) In Project > References, well, I can't open this window.

    Solution: I don't know. Installed on Windows XP only.
    If someone knows how to solve these problems, please post a solution.
    Thanks.

    Or you could simply post your questions, kind of what support forums are about don't you think?

    If it's a search and find situation then the member might as well hit google and find a tutorial instead of posting.
