Why does vb6 ask for vs2005 cd every time I load it?

I've loaded Visual Basic 6 SP6 onto my new build as well as Visual Studio 2005, now every time I load VB6 I get asked for the VS2005 CD and it takes about 10 minutes to configure whatever it thinks it needs to configure, then VB6 is fine.  Except when I restart the software and we have to go through the same thing over again.

If I click Cancel to the 3x setups it tries then I can use VB6 no problems, so it's doing something it possibly doesn't need to do.

Anyone got any ideas / fixes?

Try removing the VB6.

Then reinstall it..

Solved, thanks to JackOfPH for the pointer.  The trick is to install VB6 first, then SP6 for VB6 then install VS2005.  I had installed VS2005 first then VB6, so I just uninstalled VS2005, then reinstalled.  I can now open both programs with no additional stuff popping up (other than the usual startup boxes).

Cheers

The author mentioned that I pointed him to the right direction.

I think I deserved some points here...
