since VB6 is really obsolete why not you try to develop your application by using VB.NET instead? and then you can avoid or minimize the compatible risk and other issues when you trying to deploy your application into the target machine.

Develop an application in VB.NET is relatively easier compare to the effort needed in VB6.

You may also think off the sustainability of your application for further deployments.

Although newer versions are available, you can use the same tools.
