  1. Re: [RESOLVED] How to Activate/Create Debugging Log for Desktop app

    Awesome! Thanks a bunch. :-)

    I'm going to assume that "Me.Name" would need to be replaced with a straight up string name if sub/function is part of a Module and not a Form.

    I'll also have to...
  2. Re: [RESOLVED] How to Activate/Create Debugging Log for Desktop app

    Yes, I did add numbers using MZTools. Thanks.

    And I added the "Erl" at the end of the Msgbox line of code as shown here.


    240 On Error GoTo 0
    250 Exit Sub

  3. Re: How to Activate/Create Debugging Log for Desktop app

    After doing that for some time, I ended up doing the MZTools route.

    I've settled for now to do the 'display' message and let user send to me.

    Thanks.
  4. [RESOLVED] How to Activate/Create Debugging Log for Desktop app

    Well, I thought my vb6 desktop application (charting app) was going real good as no users came back in over a week to state a problem.

    Until this morning...

    "The app was working great all week....

    Thanks. :-)
  6. Re: [RESOLVED] Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Depl

    Perhaps. But I only have a handful of users and they really want this to install.

    As for my 'uneducated incautious hands', I reached out for direction in the last couple of days and was not given...
  7. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    SOLVED!!!

    [Files]
    Source: vb_cairo_sqlite.dll; DestDir: {app}\Bin
    Source: vbRichClient5.dll; DestDir: {app}\Bin; Flags: regserver

    And it installs just fine now in Windows 7.

    Case closed.
  8. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    OMG!!! Yeah, I'm getting excited here.

    I figured there has to be some kind of registration issue.

    So what I did was move the whole directory (vbRichClient SQLite) to my VirtualBox Win7 DEV and...
  9. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    Eureka!!!!

    I found what is causing the Run-Time 429 error. BUT I HAVEN'T YET FIGURED OUT HOW TO FIX.

    The REASON it appears that it worked great on my DEV machine (Windows 10) but not in...
  10. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    Well, I stripped out DLL's not required (as far as I can tell), and DLL's that are standard in Windows OS's.

    Other than my executable and help file, this is all that I've included in my...
  11. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    Oh, okay. Thanks.
  12. [RESOLVED] How Do I Determine if DLL is even needed?

    There is a 3rd party DLL that I noticed was being installed from an old InnoSetup script I wrote mega years ago.

    In my current state of re-education into all things VB6 to deal with my old apps,...
  13. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    Oh this is so enlightening! Thank you so much. I sure have missed a lot of happenings over the last 1.5 decades!

    So the second list you show from "mscomct2.ocx to mschrt20.ocx" I could leave off...
  14. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    I've loaded up the VBP in Notepad++ and notice at the very top a list:

  15. Re: Create VB6 App Installation Package to install on latest Win OS's

    I will have to dig into subject of RegFree COM some. I'm happy to learn that several of those dependencies in my old Inno install script no longer needs to be in there as they are part of modern...
  16. Re: Create VB6 App Installation Package to install on latest Win OS's

    It took me to read half your comment to realize what you meant by "no-no setup". LOL! Tell me how you really feel about InnoSetup. :-)

    I recall some many years ago that when I was writing VB6...
  17. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    Thanks for commenting.

    Whether it is DPW or InnoSetup, the error is the same.
    In InnoSetup, I have the flag "regserver" for all the OCX.

    I'm testing on a fresh Win 7 install on one laptop and...
  18. Re: Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Pack

    Doesn't anyone know why this is happening? I've been at this for hours and am baffled.

    The program runs fine when executed from within the VB6 IDE.

    But it won't run when installed on any...
  19. [RESOLVED] Run-Time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object. VB6 Deployment Package

    Okay, so I have this program creating an installation package for my old VB6 application.

    I started off using InnoSetup, but in another thread the only comment was 'meh', like don't use it.
    Okay,...
  20. [RESOLVED] Create VB6 App Installation Package to install on latest Win OS's

    I have a very old vb6 application that I need to create an installation package so a user can install on his system.

    I've used InnoSetup for another vb6 application and it worked great.

    But for...
  21. Re: Pause Execution Until Function Completed (web access function)

    I shudder at the use of GoTo and never use it. As for the Do Loop, I did end up doing and it works fine. But my hesitation was what appeared in code to be repeated calling of the AppRegValidation...
  22. Re: Pause Execution Until Function Completed (web access function)

    The application was written nearly 20 years ago and I had yet to lock into a naming convention and stick with it.

    You are correct the 's' is for string. As I never settled on a 'structure'...
  23. Pause Execution Until Function Completed (web access function)

    I started a new thread as my previous thread is starting to branch out. Hope this is okay.

    I decided to simply read the contents of an ascii file from my website using the Inet control.

  24. Re: How to READ and WRITE to online MYSQL database?

    Awesome. Now we're getting somewhere!

    After a long fruitless search online and in Youtube (not much vb6 there), it appears your comment "I would not let the end user application directly query...
  25. Re: How Can a VB6 app be expired remotely?

    I'm thinking not necessarily.

    If the whole protection itself is the routine, sure. But if the protection is the data itself, stored on a server, that data is unique for that situation. I would...
  26. Re: How Can a VB6 app be expired remotely?

    It's not likely to be a coveted application that pirates would want to waste their time cracking. I suppose I'll need to learn about online access options and encryption, along with an easy way to...
  27. [RESOLVED] How to READ and WRITE to online MYSQL database?

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can remotely disable/expire a VB6 application?

    Let's say that I have a VB6 application that users can 'use' (temporarily) as long as they are part of a...
  28. Re: [RESOLVED] Error accessing the system registry - VB6 on Windows 10 (Win 7 compat)

    I've turned off compatibility and running it as Windows 10 but with Run as Administrator. It appears now to be working under Windows 10 without compatibility setup to an older version. Weird.
  29. Re: Error accessing the system registry - VB6 on Windows 10 (Win 7 compat)

    What would you recommend as the compatibility setting for VB6 on a Win 10 machine?
  30. Re: Error accessing the system registry - VB6 on Windows 10 (Win 7 compat)

    Darn! It was set to Run as Administrator. Somehow the darn thing got unchecked. Works fine now back on Win 7. I'm such a doh doh. Thanks.
  31. [RESOLVED] Error accessing the system registry - VB6 on Windows 10 (Win 7 compat)

    VB6 was working just fine on my Windows 10 Pro system with compatibility set to Windows 7 and RunAdmin.

    This morning when I started up the IDE I get "Error accessing the system registry" and...
  32. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6 Resource Editor Missing from Add-Ons

    I'm just going by his instructions. He provided some code and said to 'register' it.
  33. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6 Resource Editor Missing from Add-Ons

    On my system it was under c:\Visual Basic 6\Wizards. Yes, custom path during install.

    So how do you "re-register" it as per your instructions?

    And is there any changes to the code you provided...
  34. Re: Unable to select multiple controls using CTRL or SHIFT click

    Exactly what I experience.
  35. Re: Unable to select multiple controls using CTRL or SHIFT click

    It does. I had it set to Win 10 with no compatibility settings (and with) and this issue also shows up on my system as well. It would sometimes work correctly but then when I would do something like...
  36. Re: Unable to select multiple controls using CTRL or SHIFT click

    Then I apparently have an issue with the install. Any suggestions?

  38. Re: Unable to select multiple controls using CTRL or SHIFT click

    Yes and No.

    I followed the instructions AFTER I discovered multiple installs. The windows uninstaller, the Revo Uninstaller, and the CCleaner uninstaller provided no VB6 uninstall options. So I...
  39. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6 Resource Editor Missing from Add-Ons

    Hello.

    Two questions:

    What if that path does not already exist? Do I create it? The ONLY path that comes close on my machine is F:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98. No...
  40. Re: Unable to select multiple controls using CTRL or SHIFT click
