I have a .exe application and when I run this It disapears from the screen and I get the following error in the event viewer:

Faulting application MYAPPLICATION.exe, faulting module msvbvm60.dll, version 6.097.82, fault address 0x000e6171.

On the other hand when I run the application, (Non compiled) it works and I don't get any errors.

Thanks,

Check out initializing functions of those API. VBIDE initialize some API for its own purposes, while compiled program have no such initialization.
For example, VB IDE use common controls inside (ToolBar/ListWiew/TreeView), so when IDE loading, it calls InitCommonControls(Ex). So, if you (or another dlls) use direct API calls to common controls library (or even add XP manifest) - in IDE it will work, bit fail when compiled

Hi,

The component u speak of is Visual Basic Virtual Machine
You can find it in the windows\system32 folder

u can try to register it:
start->run->type in regsvr32 ->drag and drop the file from the windows explorer.

Still problems.... reinstall visual basic 6.0....

Regards,
Hans

msvbvmxx.dll is not a registerable (ActiveX) dll

oke... then I think that the best option is to reinstall visual basic. In some way there is a corrupted msvbvm60.dll version installed on your computer.

Goodluck!

Hans

I solve the problem, and it was totally unrelated to msvbvm60.dll.  Apperantly when an exe fails in the middle, users get error on msvbvm60.dll, but that dosen't mean there is something wrong with the dll.

There was an Array out of range issue. The intresting part was that I was not getting any error when I was running the program from the IDE.
