VB6 has generated errors

Whenever I close VB6 I get the following error message "VB6.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows." I have tried performing a clean reinstall as described in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 248347. No other applications malfunction. Everything else in VB6 works correctly. The problem has been going on for some months.

What service pack are you running?
are you using Excel, Word or even Access Object Library? if so, this might be the culprit in the error you are getting. I am assuming that you are opening your application and this error occurs when you close VB6 IDE. to verify, try and remove the references you have on the project.

Thanks but the problem occurs even when all optional libraries are de-referenced and a brand new empty project is created and discarded. The problem also occurs when any of several existing projects are opened.

Thanks but the problem occurs without service packs or after all available ones have been installed.

Are you using or did you install any third-party "add-ins" for VB6, like VBDocMan and MZTools??
