    Error on Windows 7

    Hope someone there knows an answer to this one. I have just gotten a new PC with windows 7, I intalled the VB 6.0, but whenever I try to open any project it gives me an error, it says "Automation Error, Error accesing the OLE registry", then tells me "Error accesing the system registry", and asks me if "Continues to load the project".
    I know that there is a dll that is not registered, but I don't see wich one. Does anybody knows how to deal with this program?

    Are you using a factory authorized, from Microsoft, VB6 CD to do the install?

    After you loaded the project, open the Project->References panel, and in the list of the libraries you should see one (or more) starting with the label MISSING. Either that, or start the project with full compile (Ctrl+F5) and the debugger should then stop and show you a variable declaration that is not recognized.

    I'll give it a try, thanks a lot.
