I'm not sure if this will help, but there is a fairly accurate description of the installation of the vb6 IDE.  there are quite a few options that by default that would be installed, but are recommended to be left out in a Windows 7 installation.  

There are also suggestions about running vb6 in the XP virtualization mode in windows 7. Just aout of curiosity have you looked into this? It is a nice feature for backwards compatability, but is is quite a bit of configuration to use for a legacy application.

Have you looked into updating the vb6 code to a more current version of the language?
