webbrowser control always shows as Internet Explorer 7

When I go to a web page using a webbrowser control, the web server always thinks I'm using IE7 and that is causing some compatibility problems for me.

I've read about some registry changes to make, which I did without success.

Here is what I'm using to test:

    x = "http://detectmybrowser.com/"
    WebBrowser1.Navigate (x)

did you test in debug mode or by running the compiled application after the regitry changes??

I only tested in debug mode.  I rarely make the .exe
try making the exe. if that works you would also need to add a registry entry for the IDE or debugmode

I will try the exe.  I have added vb6.exe to the registry.  Not sure if I did it right.
