VB6 installation on Windows 7 problems

I am very grateful for finding this site. After getting lost googling for ages, I found this site and it made sense. I am not a programmer, I am an amateur. I have written 2 programs in VB6. They worked fine on XP and therefore have not updated my vb 6 since I bought it and started learning to program about 14 years ago in fear less something stops working. Sooner or later I would have to move to Windows 7 so I am making the leap. Following the instructions in this site I installed VB6 onto Windows 7 64bit(I think) professional. On it I also have 32 bit(I am sure) Office 10 pro installed.
