Hi.
While installing a client's software, I found out that the 'Client Registration Utility' is misssing.

Does anybody know where can I find it?

Ophir.

VB6 Doesn't Update Clireg32.exe

Visual Basic 6.0 ships a newer version of Clireg32.exe that can be found on the Visual Basic 6.0 or Visual Studio 6.0 CDs. However, when you install Visual Basic 6.0 or Visual Studio 6.0, the newer version does not get installed on your machine. Consequently, when you create a distribution package for your Visual Basic 6.0 applications, the Package and Deployment Wizard (PDW) takes the old version of Clireg32.exe from the winnt\system32 directory and includes it in the distribution list. When this happens, you experience the problem described in the above Knowledge Base article.

To solve the problem:

Check if you have the old version in the winnt\system32 folder. The versions are:

Old Version: 5.00.3716 Size: 44 kb Date: 1/16/97 12:00
New Version: 6.00.8168 Size: 42 kb Date: 6/17/98 12:00

If the old version exists, copy the new version from the Visual Basic 6.0 CD into the Winnt\system32 directory.

Recreate the distribution files with the PDW.

Reinstall the client to the workstations.

emoreau,
I would have graded your answer, but I couldn't find the file.
It seems that my VB proffessional misses this file.

On my PC, I have it at 2 places:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\IDE\IDE98\Redist
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\Tools\Clireg

Have a look on CD 3 of VB (in the common/tools forlder)

Maybe can you reinstall your VB. Or you can give me your e-mail address and I will send it to you.

Yes because it is a VB CD set instead of Visual Studio CD set.
