yes,sorry: the problem is: why a application developed by VB6 dont work on a PC 100 mhz powered instead  while same application work if installed on a PC 500 mhz or better powered?
On detail, crack application it appens at lauch of executable by a msgBox that contains follow message "type mismatch" (on italian language "Tipo non corrispondente").Stop,died of the application...
In the first time this application worked whith GIS estension (intergraph GeoMedia)but us customer have a many PC sub dimensioned and we have had see again and to tighten the code. it is possible that pentium 10o architecture not supports code generated from vb6?

A P100 will run VB.
Just run it slowly.

A "type mismatch" error means you were trying to do something with one data type when really you need another type.
For example :

Dim x as double
Dim y as string
Dim division as double

division = x/y  ' this line will give "type mismatch"

Have another look at your code.
