It should work in VB6 (or VB5) with component "Microsoft Windows Common Controls 6 (SP4)".  If you have older project which uses version 5, you can upgrade to version 6, or use APIs for version 5.

Try like:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    ListView1.ListItems.Clear
    For i = 1 To 30
        ListView1.ListItems.Add i, , "item " & i
        Select Case i Mod 3
        Case 0
            ListView1.ListItems(i).ForeColor = vbRed
            ListView1.ListItems(i).Bold = True
        Case 1
            ListView1.ListItems(i).ForeColor = vbBlue
            ListView1.ListItems(i).Bold = True
        Case 2
            ListView1.ListItems(i).ForeColor = vbBlack
        End Select
    Next i
End Sub

Try customize above example and apply your logic there.

Hope this helps

Or, if row has more than one column:

Private Sub Form_Click()
    Dim k As Integer, itmx As ListItem
   
    Set itmx = Me.ListView1.ListItems(2)
    With itmx
        .ForeColor = vbRed   ' first column
        .Bold = True
        For k = 1 To .ListSubItems.Count ' other columns
            .ListSubItems(k).ForeColor = vbBlue
            .ListSubItems(k).Bold = True
        Next
    End With
End Sub
