Visual Basic 6 automation error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I usually run Microsoft Visual Basic 6 on Windows XP when making VB applications and I had no problem with it ever since.

I recently upgraded my OS to Windows 7.

When I try to run Visual Basic 6 it gives me an error.

I have tried re-installing Visual Basic 6 but still it gives me the same error.

How to fix this error?

Help anyone.

I believe you have put in several program which usually crash with the actual VB DLL or something like that.

It could be several Ms products automation problems. It also occurs when the hard disk is practically full, or perhaps the Memory is reduced, it’s in your computer resources perhaps you should try using it after restarting your computer.

Try using Microsoft Visual Studio 6 Tools; this tool will demonstrate you to the particular file dependencies with the selected application. Simply by running the application software from the tool you can see that data files which fails to be  available (and quite often the actual reason).

Maybe the sudden change in the operating system caused Microsoft Visual Basic 6 to not function properly or to generate this error.

To be able to use this application, you must be using at least Windows 95, the lowest possible version of operating system that the application can be launched. It is very light to the system because it doesn’t use much of the computer’s resources.

Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0system requirements:

  • Windows 95, Windows NT 3.51
  • 486 processor
  • 16 MB RAM
  • 250 MB free hard disk space

Try setting the application’s compatibility mode to Windows XP.

If it doesn’t work, you may need to reinstall Windows XP for the program to work or find a newer version of Microsoft Visual Basic that is compatible to Windows 7 and newer versions of Windows.
