----------------- Service Pack 3 for VB5 --------------

I think that the service pack 3 for VB5 may solve one or two problems that I have, and have been searching on the Mmicrosoft site for it. I can find the file Vb5_sp3.exe, but when I run it I get a message saying that the file was not compiled to a version compatible with my CPU. I'm running VB5 under Windows 98 on a Cyrix processor. Even so, when I unzip it there is no file VSSP3.EXE, which from reading all the Microsoft stuff it appears is the file I need. If I search for the file VSSP3.EXE at Microsoft then it's no-where to be found. Anyone any ideas ?

Ii don't mind giving out the points, but please don't lock it unless you're 100% certain - this way other people get the chance to answer.
Thanks in advance
Dave

I hope you have VB SP 3 in the size of 13 MB.
if not go to ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/developr/visualstudio/sp3/vb5/

If you need the file VSSps.exe let me know the size of the file.

idcanada, thanks for taking the trouble to post an answer, but please take note of "Please don't lock this unless you're 100% certain of the answer". I'm afraid you're response doesn't really give me what I'm looking for.
Thanks anyway,
Dave

a111a111a111, thanks very much - that seems to be exactly what I need. You'll need to give me a day or so to download it all, but I'll post a comment and let you know and then you can collect the points - don't worry that I'm going to run off with the points or anything as I will always give them where they are due.
Again, thanks for your help - so far looks good.
Regards
Dave
