visual basic 6.5 scroll with mouse wheel in source editor

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
How can I use my scroll wheel in the Microsoft Visual Basic 6.5 editor so that I scroll in the source code window? I have tried the solution found here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;837910 but it didn't work because it is for version 6.0 but I am using 6.5.

Great! thanks danaseaman!!! It works great. So for anyone who comes across this question: go to the link provided by danaseaman and download the program. Then simply unzip and run the .exe - it works just like that! also, to save yourself manually opening this program every time you go to use your VB editor, under "startup" select either current user or all users.

Thanks danaseaman!
