Need help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I develop an application some year ago in vb 6.0. One of my customer are not willing to upgrade and now they have a new client that needs this program. Someway I am not able to find my source code anymore. I have the original exe file. When I try to run it it show only part of the data (only comboboxes, rest of the fields it show only fieldname). The application are linkt with a ODBC datasource to a sql server 2008.

    Is there anyway to get the application running again on this computer. I'll tried to run it from a working computer, but with same result. I have also install the runtime package - vbrun60sp6.exe


    Thank you in advansed

  • Depends on what kind of computer, however, if that is an older system than Windows Vista and not 64 then there is probably a problem with that computer. 

    Otherwise your advice can be never to switch to newer OS systems and not to update that again. Be clear to him that all security risk are in that case for him.

    However, this forum is not for VB6, try the resources in this link to find a better solution if this does not fit you.
