VB6 on ME?

Is it safe to install VB6 on a PC running on ME. Everything seems to work but I notice that it is not returning the true version number of a file if I check its properties. So I was wondering if VB6 is supported by ME.

Thanks

hi

I am certain that VB6 is supported by ME.

I did have VB6 on my computer with Windows 98 and then I installed ME and did not see any change. Now I am running Windows 98 and VB6, because I just moved and cannot find my ME disk.

It may be that version numbers get screwed up when you install a new operating system.

hi merlin007,

ok

I did find my ME cd so I may install it again.

Then I can tell you for sure that VB6 works ok
in an ME OS system.

Hi leojl
Sounds like you have it sorted. Living in a natural enviroment is great. I am working from home here in Ireland. I am also with nature in fact I have a farm as well as the S/E job. Worked for a few years in the city...didn't like it.

Let me know when you get ME going. I am working with it at the moment and it seems OK.
