if you decompress all the .dll's, ocx's and other files from install problably it won't work at 100%, because some dlls or ocx must be installed with their own installation program. There are some components that you install you your machine that you can't use in the development enviroment because they are registered in your PC to use and not for development.

There is no setting to force the install to overwrite these drivers and be carefull because sometimes the setup generated by VB setup wizard won't overwrite the file in question.

There is no way of putting a  flag in the .swt file.

The only way of getting something is to recreate the previous development enviroment based on references in the .swt.

It's going to be hard.
