  • Hi friend,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    According to your description, I suppose this is an issue about VB6.0. You could ask Visual Basic forum for a better support.

    In addition, if you have any more Visual Studio General Questions issues in the future, please feel free to let us know.

    Thanks for your understanding and sorry for any inconvenience.

    Best Regards,
