Hi,

Something is wrong with my VB6 helpfiles. I stopped using VB for a long while since started working with Delphi. Now I need to use it again but my help files don't work. I think there should be a download somewhere in the microsoft site with the last VB6 documentation update (or something like that) but I can't seem to find it.

Once I downloaded the full documentation files for the VB5 Control Creation Edition, so I'm sure there must be some download for VB6.

Thanks,

Esopo.

The help files should be on your installation CD. Try a re-install

It asks for a MSDN CD I can't find.

Hi!

Updates are on three CD:s sets. MSDN subscriptions Library, last VB6 updates come out 2001. Basic help file set is on MSDN 6a, two CD's.

There is a online version of MSDN but not download.

Of cause it's not working whit F1
