Install VB6 on Windows 8

As most of the world knows, Microsoft has made available a consumer preview of Windows 8. While this is still considered beta software, I highly recommend you check it out. Some of us technology minded folks are charged with supporting legacy software, developed with Visual Studio 6 (particulary Visual Basic 6), and with the iminent release of Windows 8, there is some worry about whether our support tools will work with it. This tutorial will (hopefully) help you get VB6 installed on your Windows 8 system!

Troubleshooting DNS with NSLookup and dig

To be proficient at troubleshooting name server problems, you'll need a special tool to make DNS queries, one that gives you complete control. We'll cover nslookup in this tutorial because it's distributed with Windows Server 2003 and with many other operating systems. We'll also cover another query tool, dig, that isn't part of Windows. It provides similar functionality and doesn't suffer from nslookup's deficiencies.

vb6 load problem

I have been running a VB6 application for several years on XP. I recently bought a window 7 computer and successfully loaded vb6 on windows 7. The program was running fine on windows 7. Out of the blue I get an "Error during load. refer to log" The log says "Line 15: Class MSComctlLib.ProgressBar of control pgbUpdate was not a loaded control class." I use a progress bar in two places in the program. I get this same error message twice during the load process. The program will run in the development mode. I do get an error break when it tries to run the progress bar. Is there a vb6 file that got corrupted?

VB6 Enterprise Edition SP6 Compilation error

I recently compiled some of my VB6 work modules in XP Mode under Windows 7. On first compile, I al always having this error stating "DLL cannot be loaded". When looking at the VB6 References they are missing. So I would add the reference again and when re-compiled, I still got the error, so I re-generated the missing DLL, went back to the first VB6 module I am compiling and the error went away. The modules that I am compiling perfectly compiled in the Windows XP system I copied them from. Do you know of any reason why this is happening?
