Is Service Pack 6 Stable?

Last Modified: 2010-05-02
I have been advised to install VB 6.0 service pack 4 to address a problem I am having getting a datareport to print in landscape mode.  On the MS website I can't find anything further back than service pack 5.  I donwloaded service pack 6 but did not install it yet.  I would like to verify with non-MS (EE) sources that SP6 will not cause me problems.  I have many stable apps that I developed with my current VB level and don't want cause problems with any of those.

Any info on this would be helpful.

I am currently running SP6 with no problems and am not aware of issues with it.

You might want to wait for others to chime in though.  EE Programming TA's are typically dead on the weekend though so you may have to wait until Monday for most people to see your question.

I have SP6 loaded and don't have any problems or issues.
