    Why installing VB6 application gets stuck on Windows 10?

    We have old VB6 apps, and we need to install them on Windows 10.

    Why the installer gets stuck and shows "Not Responding" message after it has started?
    I think it gets stuck on installing "Microsoft Data Access Components 2.0"

    I found some articles on this problem, and it said, install the VB6 application with clean boot, i.e closing startup applications on Windows 10.

    I tried this but again it gets stuck.

    What do you think, what is the problem?

    You should not be installing the MDAC as part of your install. These components are already part of the OS and can not be installed by your installer.
    Remove those from your install and you will probably be fine.

    Are we talking about this file: MDAC_TYP.EXE ?
    Any other?

    How can I remove it from the installer?
    Just delete this file in the Support folder and comment the line in SETUP.lst?

    Yes I commented the line that installed MDAC_TYP.EXE and changed the numbers of the files to install. It installed the application with no problem.
