Since older versions of  MSVBVM60.DLL is incompatible with Windows Vista, errors often occur even the one you’ve encountered. If you want to check if you are using an older version, simply follow these steps:

  • Go to Start and using your Search command, locate MSVBVM60.DLL
  • Right-click the file and Select Properties
  • Open the Details tab and check Product Version as illustrated

If you are using version 6.0.88.77, you are currently using an older version, so you need to download a newer one from http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6/vbrun60.cab. All you need to do is download and install it to repair the errors.

 

I hope this helps!

Hai,
 
Msvbvm60.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the msvbvm60 DLL file.
 
In some cases, msvbvm60.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.
 
 
Solution 1
 
Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to msvbvm60.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file msvbvm60.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
 
Note: The msvbvm60.dll file may or may not be related to video cards – this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
 
Solution 2
 
Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the msvbvm60.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
 
Solution 3
 
Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual msvbvm60.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
 
Hope this helps.
