Hi no
i have two issues
1. The reference VB6.FixedLengthString is old and no longer supported

2. Imports VB = Microsoft.VisualBasic and when i add as a reference it is creating ambiguous error in my code with "format$" saying that the vb reference is conflicting with system string or system.io

So a work around for the vb reference code i think is the best path to avoid other conflicts
