I wonder why I cannot use anymore all components in VB6 after the annual upgrade of Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello my friends

    I have recently upgraded my Windows 10 with the annual upgrade that came out in august 2016. After that upgrade, I cannot use certain components in VB6 anymore.

    When I start my projects, I noticed that projects that use components like Richtext, Comm, CommDialog, FlexGrid, etc,

    the projects gives "Permission denied" warnings. Projects that do not use these components have no problems.

    Is Microsoft going to fix this and if yes, when will they fix this??

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your explanation about the Run as Administrator. I already hoped this was what I had to do.

    At this moment I cannot check your solution as I restored my Windows to the previous preAnnual Upgrade situation and Microsoft does not offer the annual Upgrade now. So I have to wait a little to check it.

    Thanks anyway and in advance

  • VB6 was released in 1998 and is no longer supported in win 10.  Microsoft is not doing any development on it

    Microsoft has committed itself to keep VB6 working. Even in Windows 10, so ... See internet.

    I have just removed the Annual Upgrade (augustus 2016) so, that is a pity, because it is timeconsuming.

    But are you sure that it works with the last annual Upgrade when  I am working as administrator?

    How can I run an existing project 'as administrator'?

  • You mean the VB6 runtime, which is indeed still supported.
    But the IDE is not supported on Windows 10:

  • Hello AlanPlum

    I am allways logged in as an administrator, because my account is assigned  as an administrator

    is that the reason why I do not see the choise: 'Run as administrator'?

    If that is true, than your solution does not work on my pc

    Thanks

  • Hi

    I don't think my question has yet been resolved enough.

    Ecki only made a remark about VB-IDE

    I hope for more comment from AlanPlum
