Physics calculator VB6 .EXE application needs conversion to a web application

I have 15 topics (each on a separate VB6 form) in my .exe application - The PhysiCalc (a physics calculator) - plus about 5 more misc useful pages (forms) like a timer, Work Space etc. I have tried the VB6 web migration wizard in the past but not with the results I had desired. Although the web migration wizard managed to convert the individual topic pages that appeared in Internet Explorer (later/latest version) as separate web pages in new browser windows, the main page - page to be loaded on start of application - with the menu (topics etc) did not convert at all. Moreover, the browser - instead of opening directly - opened with the option to Save or Download each topic/page - something undesirable in my application as I do not want the user to save or download my web application - for business security reasons. Rather, he/she should simply run the calculator pages in the web browser upon entering the site's URL and application loading. I will be grateful if you could kindly provide as simple and as straightforward a solution as possible with minimal amount of work or changes. Also, pls explain as briefly as possible on how to go about launching the entire application on the internet (when ready) - eg the sequence of events as in web hosting, domain registration etc and where (on web) to proceed for all this. Thanks
