VB6 Installation Question

When a user installs my VB6 program hes gets the following Setup message. Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your system. Click OK if you would like setup to update these files for you now. You will need to restart Windows before you can run setup again. Click cancel to exit setup without updating system files.

     That is the message from Win95 and NT says that oleaut32 is out of date. Will this hurt anything if the user updates the files? Is this normal? Have I done something wrong?

This is normal.  VB6 has a new runtime that must be copied and registered before you can run your VB6 application.  Basically, your user will have to install the VB6 runtime and run the installation for your program again.

I have done this on 50 machines and have not had any problems.

There is a re-boot in between...
