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


Any other suggestions?

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.
