While I tried to understand some documentation at the Microsoft web site on this, I don't.
I am using VB6 with service pack 5; however, under the components, the RichTextBox is listed as being from service pack 4.
Using the setup program created by the VB Package and Deployment Wizard, a screen appears with the titlebar message "version conflict." The message on the screen is as follows:
A file being copied is not newer than the file currently on your system. It is recommended that you keep your existing file.
File name: c:\Windows\system\RichEd32.dll
Your version: 5.0.1458.47
The impression I got from the microsoft site was that I cannot update this file in VB 6 for installation programs. This is a potentially dangerous message to receive as an end user may mistakenly press "NO" which would in effect not save the more up to date file and install the file from setup whic is older.
Can someone clarify what is happening and how I can solve this so that the install program would automatically keep the more up-to-date version without a prompt. Is it possible?
