Using VB6. I've created a small prg to use at work, compiled it and packaged it for deployment. Home computer has XP Pro and office computer has 98SE. I get the dreaded "Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your system......" Click OK to have setup update them and reboot. Same problem.
I went to Microsoft site article 193034, which does a good job explaining the problem and offers what appear to be adequate solutions. The problem is I'm too ignorant to make it work.
I've tried copying the list of newer .dll files into the system32 folder, but get ex: "can't replace oleaut32.dll. File in use by someone," paraphrased. Briefly attempted using regsvr32 to no avail. I feel like I'm engaged in a game of "Stump the dummy" and guess who that is???
Does anyone know an easy way around this?...jb
