I created a setup using the package wizard with VB 6.0.  On certain pc's, when I attempt to run the setup.exe I get an error that Setup.EXE is missing link to OLEAUT32.DLL - 185.  I checked the version of OLEAUT32 on the client pc and verified that it is the same version used by the Setup application.

Any thoughts?

I seem to remember reading about this being one of the "compatibility issues" that M$ is issuing a service pack for.

I am having the same problem when installing on NT machines. I've also asked around and have been told to wait for the Service Pack from Microsoft.

Microsoft put out an alert about *six* compatibility issues and basically said that if you develop in VB6 you shouldn't release anything commercially until *AFTER* the service pack update. Gee *THANX* Bill, my customers *NEED* defective code!
