VB 6 File Access/Path Error on Windows 7
Posted on 2010-09-02
I've got a legacy app in VB6 composed of two programs... a "login" and a "main". The login checks on a SQL server for a new main and vice versa. When either is updated (which happens frequently), the appropriate program is automatically downloaded. Anyway, some users have just begun installing Windows 7 and they get the file/path access error when the program runs.
I had a similar issue on Vista and it was a rights problem. I had a MacBook for testing web apps so I put on Parallels and Vista to work out that problem and that has been resolved. However, my version of Parallels won't install the Windows 7. The copy I have came with my current notebook but also had a free downgrade to XP. After a few hours of W7, away it went and back to XP.
I know nothing about Windows 7. It this also a right issue? Where on Windows 7 do I direct the users to go to appropriately enhance their access?
