Good Day Experts!

I am having some trouble converting a VB6 project to VB.Net 2005.  I get the following error:
"Unexpected exception occurred during upgrade engine operation: Not able to bind to the source(Exception from HRESULT: 0x8004000A(OLE_E_CANT_BINDTOSOURCE))"

In the past I have upgraded a VB6 project successfully.

Is there something I need to do to the VB6 project to make it able to be upgraded?

Thanks,

Hello FernandoSoto:

Thanks for responding.  I have found the information in the article:

Export and delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node key

It worked!!!

Thanks,
