VS.NET, Visual Studio 6 and Service Pack 2

Posted on 2004-10-21

I've got a brand new machine.    It's fresh out of the box, with xp and sp2 on it.  I am trying to install and vs6 on it.  I was able to install VS.NET w/no problem, but when I try to launch a new project, it tells me "Library not found".    No idea what library it's referring to.   The event log is blank.    

VS6 errors on install w/several .dll's.   Any ideas?   Do I need to disable anything or adjust any settings?   I really think this is an SP2 issue.

    well, if you got errors installing VS6, and you installed that after .net, i would go back and try to re-install VS.Net. does vs6 work?

    i have xp sp2 and, but not version 6, and everything works fine.

    try it hard way :

    1.uninstall and uninstall vs6
    2.uninstall sp2 (
    3.install vs6
    4.install and install sp2

    I did this way and it seems to work ok.
