A VB6 application I created in XL doesn't run on Windows 7. This is reported to me by a user. I do not have Windows 7 here.

As far as I can tell, the trouble is that a DLL included in the installation failed to install.

The quickest way around this for now would be to manually install and register the DLL. Can this be done? I would have to relay your suggestions to the user. I don't want to screw up his OS, though, so some care is required.

What is the main difference between XL and Windows 7? And why does Microsoft do this to us?
