Mouse wheel in VB

My mouse wheel has no affect in both VB6 and VBA.  How do I get it to work?  or is it something Microsoft forgot.  My mouse wheel does work elsewhere.

Thank you vinnyd79.  I followed the instructions under Method 1, and now it works in VB6.  I will award you the full points.

However, it still does not work in VBA (Excel).  In this case, when I went to Add-Ins, Add-Inn Manager, there were none available.  Is there a patch for VBA as well.  Windows 2000.
Did you create the reg file to merge into your registry as suggested in the article?

Yes, I did steps 1-7, and that is why it now works in VB6.
Actually I was referring to the info listed after method 2:

Note You can also use this add-in in most VBA environments. Install the add-in as described earlier, create a .reg file with the following values, and merge it with your registry.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VBA\VBE\6.0\Addins\VB6IDEMouseWheelAddin.Connect• "FriendlyName"="MouseWheel Fix"
• "CommandLineSafe"=dword:00000000
• "LoadBehavior"=dword:00000000
Note These keys may be ignored if you put them under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

The file, "VBA Mouse Wheel Fix.reg", came with the fix, and it does contain the information, [HKEY_CURRENT ... Connect] ... "LoadBehaviour"=dword:00000000", as required.

Please can you tell me "in words of one syllable" exactly how I "merge" (this file?) with my registry?  Our HelpDesk would crucify me if they discovered that I mucked about with the Registry and messed it up.

Eureka, I discovered it.  Right-button click on the file, "VBA Mouse Wheel Fix.reg".  Select "Merge", say "Yes" to add to Registry.  Then in VBA, go to Add-Inns, and it will be there.  Put a tick in both boxes, "Loaded/Unloaded" and "Load on Startup", as in VB6, and it works.

If it is so simple, why did Microsoft leave it out of the standard setup?
