What happens on some of the forms (not all of them) is when I tryh to do a requery on an a recordset object i.e. I found that I also had to modify the properties of the VB6.EXE file (in the compatibility tab) to "run as administrator". One problem I sometimes need to register 3rd party ocx files but in most cases Windows 7 32bit does not allow copying them to Windowssystem32 for registering but place the in the incompatible folder.
You may be wondering why someone would want to utilize VB6 on a shiny new operating system like Windows 7. There are about a bazillion legacy applications out there that have to be supported, and people like me who speak VB6 need to have the tools installed on our workstations in order to implement and test updates and such for these legacy applications.It also helps out when I need to squirt out a quick tool for use in my daily work.However, after resetting the environment, I was able to reproduce the error you mention by leaving UAC turned on. Sourcesafe works too, but I can't work with sourcesafe from within the IDE.The SS add-in is loaded, there are no errors shown, but I don't have any extra contextmenu-items.

I had to take out all the CD controls because it meant my users without XP had to do too much installing of too many things in sys32. Date: 2010-09-02 I'll hammer on this today, and see if I can duplicate the behavior.For the most part it works OK but two hiccups1/ From time to time youll click SAVE AS and no box will come up2/ When a save box does come up it doesnt have the name of the file in it in other words I dont think this works for vista any ideas? Are you getting any weird event log entries that might be related?
Along the lines of Path not found or access denied, or some such?If I've left something out, don't hesitate to point it out. Your comments and suggestions are much appreciated. Date: 2010-02-09 Thanks for the tip on fixing slugishness. I have a problem with large forms in the IDE in Win7.Note 2: If you have a specific programming questions, might I please direct your attention to the VB6 forum? Date: 2009-11-15 Super information - got VB6 up and running, your explanation saved me a lot of searching. It gets to something like 1000x800 and won't let me drag it any bigger.After surfing around the net, I've found very little information regarding installation of VB6 on Windows 7.Most of the information out there is for Vista, and most of it is queries for assistance.I have set the properties of acmesetup and setupsp6 to run as administrator and Windows SP 3 mode.
