First of all check if vbrun300.dll exists anywhere on your system (it should be in your WINDOWS or WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory). Also, if your program opens a file with the open statement, make sure that the file exists in the directory where the program was compiled to.

If you open files in your program then trap the error in you functions which do this.  Report the error and where it occurred.

Most of the time this problem occurs while running the executable while missing a dll. In most cases this is the MSAFINX.DLL which should be in your path somewhere. If you use specific functions, it uses this dll and if it's not there, it will give this specific error. So check the windows- and systemdirectory of the machine you are running it on and copy the dll to that location.
