Setup cannot continue system files are out of date on your system

I have developed a software in Visual Basic 6. My machine has Windows XP Professional OS. I created a package using P&D. When I tried to install the package in other machine  message was there "Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your system. Click OK If you would like setup to update these files for you now. You will need to restart Windows before you can run setup again. Click cancel to exit setup without updating system files."

Then I click OK and another message came out ;

" Do you want to restart Windows now? If you choose 'No', you will not be able to run setup again until after the system rebooted at a later time."

Then I click Yes to restart Windows and try to run setup.exe again, but still cannot . Same message will appear everytime I run the setup file.
I went through the microsoft site and none of the solutions worked. Can anyone help me in this regard,

Have you installed SP5 or SP? for your VB6 ?

You may try to download and install vbrun60sp6.exe from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290887 on the client PC before restarting your setup.

Hi emoreau,
I have downloded the vbrun60sp6.exe. I will try the same today on the client machine and let you know tomorrow as the machine is physically located at some different place.
