Install vb6 application

When I try install VB6 Application on
PC which hasn't installed VB6 every time
I have message:
 An error occured while registering the file 'C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\EXPSRV.DLL'           Abort/Retry/Ignore

And the same message maybe for OCX controls and other necessary VB6 files.

How can I install VB6 Applications without any weird messages like it was in VB5 ?
Regards

This DLL can't be registred.

You have a couple of solution that you can apply to correct your problem. The easiest way is to installed SP3 and rebuild your package. You can also check http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q236/2/81.ASP?LNG=ENG&SA=ALLKB

I believe "error registering 'C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\EXPSRV.DLL' is a known bug/issue to the P&D wizard - search the MS knowledge base or EE.

However, like already suggested, my advise is also to get rid of the P&D wizard and use some 3th party tool like IS Express/Professional or WISE.

I believe MS has launched a new SETUP tool, but I got no experience with it - and prefer to keep it that way.

You must have REGSVR32.EXE file in the system directory!

Thanks to all guys who tried to help me.
I did download SP3 (as emoreau said), rebuilt all my VB6 apps, created new installation SW, tested it and now everything works OK.
That's reason why I rejected akos_m's answer and must give 70 points to emoreau. Anyway thanks again to akos_m's.
Cheers
George
