Visual Data Manager does not open

Hello experts:
This is the scenario:  
Windows 2kPro, 533 Celeron, 256MB RAM, 64MB Video RAM, 60GB HD.

Visual Basic 6 (Sp4),
Go to "Add-Ins" menu
Select "Visual Data Manager"
An error message comes up:
  Name of the message box: Microsoft Visual Basic

      "Invalid class string. Looking for object with
      ProgId: VisData.VisDataClass" without the quotes.

Erased the HD and reinstalled W2kPro. Reinstalled Visual
Studio 6 (Sp4), same results. Installed Sp6 and still
the same.
Any ideas why it is doing this? It seems there are some registry entries that did not happen during installation. Anyone can tell me which or how to fix this? The rest of the program works fine.

Thanks in advance,

Also clicking on "Help" of the message box produces the following:

The class string you are trying to use is invalid. This is a system error. If this problem persists, re-install Visual Basic or the affected application, and try again.
Log onto the account where you installed vb from.
Or right click VB.exe and choose RUN AS and type in the account where you installed VB from.

Sorry had to install from another CD. It seems my installation CD had a problem and the VisData.VisDataClass was not registered during installation. Used a Backup CD and it works.
Thanks for trying,

The solution was to use a good copy of the installation CD to reinstall Visual Basic.

I am requesting that this question be closed.
Thanks to all.
