VB6 runtime

Report Back to Forum Back to All Forums

I have many old VB6 programs which my family history society distribute. We now need to get them running on Windows 10 machines for our more adventurous users..

Some install OK, some stop during the loading data access components stage. I am using ADO to read Access databases.

Do I understand that I do not need to install Data Access Components? If so, which files do I leave out?

I am now running VB6 IDE on a Windows 10 machine upgraded from Windows 7 using an pre-existing installation of VB6, so the runtime distribution will be created in this environment.

You can try leaving the components selected during install, but you will need to install the MDAC seperately after installation, if it is not already installed.
