vb6 app deploy on Win 7 or 8 computer

I am running a VB6 app on a clients Win xp computer. The client wants to purchase a new computer which will most likely have win 8 as the OS. Does anybody know how to deploy a VB6 App on a Windows 7 or 8 computer.
Is the VB6 Package and Deployment Wizard of any use? I am currently running Win 7 on my computer. I have VB.net on my computer. I also have VB6 running on my computer.

Do you have the original setup package, and does it contain all the dependencies? If so, you should not have any problems.

Where you will run into problems is if you are depending on some feature that is only available on WIndows XP, and not Windows 8. For example, some part of the Luna desktop theme.

As long as that is not the case, you should be fine.
