Visual Basic 6.0 Application on Windows 7 64-bit

Hi there,

We have an Visual Basic 6.0 Application which we would like to run on a Windows 7 64-bit machine, after installing it and you try to open it, this pops up like 7 or 8 times to install (if you let it try and install, the EnterpriseClientSetup_XP error eventually comes up)...

Error
...but if you press cancel each time it eventually goes away and the application opens up.

I would appreciate any input to try and resolve this issue.

Thank you!

Bad coding on the part of the programmer as they did an explicit test for  Windows XP
have you tried the compatibility settings? Right click on the executable and select run in compatibility for Windows XP SP3
