Is it possible to easily prevent the VB6 OLE and Automation files from overwriting the files if they already exist on the machine? I know it only writes with newer versions of the files. But I am having problems with newer version of these files preventing other 'critical' programs from working correctly on users machines.
Specifically the oleaut32.dll, but in the past I have had problems with comcat.dll.

I think at this point I'd rather have it not install these files and risk my program not running than to have the complaints.
