Enabling MouseWheel Scrolling in VBA 6.3 Editor

I'm trying to enable scrolling via mousewheel in the VBA 6.3 editor (Used for editing MS Office macros). I was able to get it working in the normal VB6 editor by following the steps in this MS KB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=837910

You may need to use this link for the file because the one on the Microsoft site chops off the rest of the URL:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/F/B/EFB39198-7C59-4ACE-A5C4-8F0F88E00D34/VB6%20Mouse%20Wheel.exe

But the add-in did not appear in the 6.3 editor's list of available add-ins. I went into the VB project to try and modify it so that it would include the 6.3 editor, unsuccessfully. Does anyone know how to get this DLL to register for the 6.3 editor?

Try this:
http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/2060/freewheel.html

Alternatively you could revert to IntelliPoint 4 mouse driver as this should fix the problem

or try
regsvr32 VB6IDEMouseWheelAddin.dll
at the command prompt in the directory with the dll.

I just tried http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/2060/freewheel.html on my machine and VBA works fine with it.

I ended up not needing your answer, but thanks for replying (you get the points). I just needed to modify the registry like it suggests on the KB article after Method 2 to get it to work for VBA.
