VB 6 and Sheridian Controls Expiration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My company has an ancient application and is unable to compile changes to it. The error is related to not being able to validate the license for the Sheridian controls.

    Microsoft provides this "VBUSC.EXE Provides Licensing for Discontinued Controls


    It seems that even this Microsoft hack is no longer working. Any ideas on how to work around it? We tried compiling it on a disconnected physical machine with the date/time rolled back with no success.

    Yes, Sheridian controls should be removed and that is in process, but there is a need for an immediate fix to the existing application.
