Hi experts,
I need assistance.  I get the following error when I try to open my VB6 project:

File not found: 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\ieframe.dll\1'--Continue Loading Project?

What is causing this?  How do I fix it?

Thanks in advance,
mrotor

Open Project1.vbp (using notepad) and delete the line . . .

Object={ . . a big number here . . }#1; ieframe.dll

and replace the line by the line ...

Object={EAB22AC0-30C1-11CF-A7EB-0000C05BAE0B}#1.1#0; ieframe.dll

Then save the file, and open the VB6 project again. Now it should work.

The file already has the following:

Object={EAB22AC0-30C1-11CF-A7EB-0000C05BAE0B}#1.1#0; ieframe.dll

Edit the registry and replace all occurrences of ieframe.dll\1 with ieframe.dll

There are lots of discussions about this common problem on the web. Here's one. If you're nervous about editing the Registry, just realize that you aren't deleting anything and, if necessary, you can put the \1 back.
