VB6 application not running from Windows 10 machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have an VB6 application it needs to run in Windows 10 machine. We are getting the error message as "This app can't run on your PC" while trying to run the application. It is a Dell laptop. If we follow below steps then application working on this Laptop, but this needs to be done on daily basis which is difficult when users using the application.

    1. Daily application needs to reinstall. 

    2. Take back up of the application from the folder "C:\Programfiles(X86)"

    3. Restart the machine

    4. Restore the backup files into the folder "C:\Programfiles(X86)".

    But application running fine in other Windows 10 machines with below mentioned configuration.

    Please find the machine configuration.

    Windows 10 - 64 bit

    RAM - 16GB

    Office -2016

    Thanks for your suggestions.
