Install fails on XP

I'm trying to install a VB6 SP6 app on XP SP1 and each time it tries to install 14 files, then says they are out of date and would I like to update them, I say yes, the install continues and instructs me to reboot and run set up again, wghich I do.  Then I run setup again and the same thing happens.  I am logged on the xp machine as administrator.  What else can I tell you to help you help me solve this issue?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is a known bug, see:

In my experience, the fixes mentioned work some of the time, you would be better off switching to INNO (free) or some other setup creation tool.

Make sure you download the 3rd party tools - they will help generate setup scripts and read through the FAQ on VB

remove msvcrt.dll from the setup.lst file
The problem with the PDF is that you realy need to place the orriginal windows 95 dlls into the ....\pdwizard\redist folder.  I also updat ethe setup1.exe (compiled with a larger version number), in the pdwizard folder as there is a bug in setup.exe which will not load your version of setup1.exe if it finds a leter version already in the windows folder.  There are also several other bugs in setup1.exe so all this may starts to sound a bit of a pain, which is why the INNO (free) suggestion starts to make a lot more sense.
PDF = PD Wizzard
