Installing VB6.0 SP6 on Windows 7 64bit

I would like to install VB6 on my new Windows 7 machine (64 bit)

I do not want to use a virtual Machine, is this possible?

Is there any good article which explains what kind of issues may arise?

I ocasionaly need to recompile older programmes and dll.
When compiling under windows 7 is there the danger that it compiles differently?

i think that it would compile your programs ok - it will run in a "virtual 32 bit environment" within the 64 bit windows.
The problem that you may run into is that the installer will not run - - if you can get it to install then you should be good to go.

I think Win7 has improved lately, we had heard earlier of lots of problems with VB6 + Win7 but have not had any trouble ourselves. We only have a few PCs running VB6 on Win7-64 but all the VB6 functions seem to work fine.
