Installing VB6 in Windows 11

(1/3) > >>

daveyk:
I have no problems installing VB6 in Windows 10, but the install program does not get very far in Windows 11.

Very early in the process, I get the following error: Visual Studio 6.0 Professional Setup was not completed sucessfully.

It could have to do with security permissions in Windows 11, which as the admin, I find a real pain in the ass.

Thought, experience please.

daveyk:
Stupid Windows 11 will not let you change the permissions of c:\program Files (x86), to the Administrator.

Frustrating...

Question: Do applications made in VB6 run?
If they don't 2022 will be a complete nightmare

"The Visual Basic 6.0 IDE is no longer supported as of April 8, 2008. "

Yes, but it installed just fine in Windows 10.  I can not get it to install in Windows 11.   I might just revert this new PC back to Windows 10 (it was supposed to come with 11 but had 10 installed on it).  HP spend three hours remote putting Windows 11 on it yesterday.
