VB6 DHTML Application, IE7, Cannot Add Controls to Documents...

Posted on 2007-07-28

Hello Friends,

I am working with VB6 SP6 on WinXP Pro SP2 with IE7 installed.

My problem is this, since I have installed IE7, I can no longer add controls to a VB6 DHTML Application document.  I know this is related to IE since under IE6, I could add controls just fine. However, I can copy controls from one document to the next if the control was already on a document pre IE7.

Are there any settings, tweaks, etc... (besides not having IE7 installed) that could eliminate this problem?
This has been a problem for me for a while and I have found no solution.

Thanks for any help. :)

    Tools -> Options
    Then Security tab.

    If you are working on Intranet, choose Intranet. Else choose Internet
    Then, set Prompt to allow ActiveX and Scriptlet.
