Service Packs

Posted on 1998-10-15

I am running VB 5.0 and the service packs were never installed. (and we're not converting to VB 6.0 anytime soon)

Questions:

1: If the item I need to update is in SP 3 is it necessary to load SP 1 & SP 2 first?

2: Are there any "issues" with loading the service packs after executables are created? That is, if I create an .exe (& the setup files) for my program, install a Service Pack and then re-create the .exe for my program - will I have any conflict issues?

3. When my company does convert to VB 6.0 - do I need to make sure all of the SP's are installed before upgrading?

1. No, Service Pack 3 will contain both SP1 and SP2

2. I've never heard of any problems with this.

3. No, VB6.0 is installed separately. You can even have VB5.0 and VB6.0 both installed on your machine.
