Visual Basic 6 application moved to new server - activex component can't create object

    Question

  • I have to move a VB6 application that was running on a Windows 2003 machine to a new Windows 2008 machine.

    This EXE application was using classes defined in a DLL using the Createobject method.

    Now, after the class instance has been created by Createobject, when the program calls the methods error 429 "activex component can't create object" is issued.

    The DLL has been registered on the new server using the command :

    regsvr32 c:\folderx\dllname.dll

    Which is the right forum to get help on this ?

    Thanks.

  • Microsoft ended support for VB6 a number of years ago and as such there are no longer any Microsoft forums for VB6. You might try searching for other web forums such as these.

  • Hello,

    As Dave says, VB 6 is no longer supported by Microsoft.

    I’d suggest asking in one of the following third-party forums which support Visual Basic 6.
