Since I moved to a new computer and from Windows98 to WindowsXP my Visual Basic 5.0 and 6.0 behave very strange. Although I did not alter the code and only copied my projects to the new computer I get "Can't find project or library" on the code elements format and space and I get the error "User-defined type not defined" on the function
Private Function SortOutput(strTemp As String, rstTemp As Recordset), the parameters are declared.
Under Windows98 everything worked correctly, so I suspect WindowsXP.
Has anyone experienced something similar.
The above problems are probably not the only ones I will come across. But  
as long the above ones are not solved I cannot get any further.
I appreciate your suggestions.

Format, space and all other string manipulation functions belongs to vba.dll, are you sure that it is installed?
Both pc have the same SP for VB?
