Several years ago I installed VB 3.0, and the VB 4.0 with no problems.  Now I am trying to install VB 6.0  During the installation process, the software informed me that I was using an obsolete version of IE.  I do not use IE.  It was on the computer when I purchased it from Gateway.  I use Netscape 4.7.  The software wants me to upgrade to the current version of IE.  If I say no, it prevents me from completing the installation.  How can I install VB 6.0 without installing (upgrading) IE and continue to use Netscape 4.7?

sheldong,
VB6 requires IE to be installed on the PC, and a current version at that (not IE5 but at least 4)

When you install it will give you a cohice of "typical" or "custom" install.  Select choice and browse ALL of the sub catagories until you find the IE components (if exist) and de-select them.  But hes's comment was moreover true, VB and IE are designed to augment each other in development.
