creating an application package that can be installed in stand alone systems
Posted on 2003-03-20
I developed an application in vb6.0 with MS Access as backend.
I compiled it using the package&development wizard of vb 6.0 tools.
When I try to install it in some systems, the following message is displayed.
'Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your system.Click OK if you would like set up to update these files for you now.You will needto restsrt windows before you can run setup again. Click cancel to exit setup without updating system files.
After getting this message, even if I opt to update the files and restart the system, the same message is repeatedly displayed, and it becomes impossible to install my application in such systems.
But this problem is not encountered in all systems.Especially in IBM computers and some HCL copmputers with Windows 2000 professional as OS,
this problem is observed.
The program was developed in a Compaq system with Windows 2000 professional as OS.In similar systems, there is no problem with installation.
