Visual Basic 6 project won't compile unless on Drive C

We're re-tasking a Windows 2003 Server to hosting client's web sites and I must move some legacy Visual Basic 6 Projects to another Windows 2003 Server that we got back off lease. The target server has all the system on drive D. Visual Studio 6 installs fine on drive D but the project won't load from that drive. ( I didnt' write it) I would like to get it to run on Drive D but it simply won't load into Visual Studio 6 and won't give me decent information on what to do about it.
Anyone else have this issue.

You need Microsoft Visual Basic Installed and all the components or other things that have been referenced

If you have that it is easy enough to find the reasons why it won't compile ... missing references controls etc!

Something as basic as what I wanted to do should have a program to figure out all the missing references and go get the controls etc and list out all hard coded references in all the projects and suggest a change.
