I think you can't be able to use the .NET component in vb6. As you are exporting a component from higher version to a lower version. It won't support..

You can create a .NET assembly that has the user control and then use it in VB6.

I'll see if I can get it to work. If it does then we can use the .NET Unicode aware controls in Vb6. I'm assuming that it would require the target audience to have .NET Framework installed.

Yes, they will need the .NET framework, which provides the code for the base user control.
