I have a client with a VB6 dev environment installed on a 32-bit XP box that is used to maintain a suite of accounting modules. It is VB6 for 32-bit, SP3 (although I should probably upgrade to sp6 sometime)
I managed to get the install sets (for the accounting modules) to work OK via the compatibility mode (because there were all sorts of ocx, dll and tlb issues).
I now have to migrate the dev platform (i.e. VB6 dev environment. ) to a W7/64-bit machine.
Do I install this in compatibility mode (inc all the service packs) or straight?
