Why?  Have you not resolved the IUSR or IWAM_machine issues to allow debug to run?  If not, the resolution to the debug issues is here.  I implemented the debug fix about a year and a half ago and it works.

Where DLL references do you have in your VB6 app.?

When I upgraded clients, I had to update my app with references to latest DLLs. For example, ADODB references had to be updated form the v2.8 to v7 to work on newer clients.
