Thread: VB6 on Win 2000 Pro

    VB6 on Win 2000 Pro


    Hello:

    We will be installing VB6 and VS6 or Win2000 Pro. The question I have is,
    will we still be able to write applications that will run on Win95/98/NT?

    Anything that I should be aware of. Is anyone developing on Win2000?

    thanks for any tips and concerns.

    LS

    Nothing special that you should be aware of. Works just fine on my
    Win2000Pro.

    Win2k Pro is a very developer-friendly OS. There are lot of things that
    you can't do on other os. As a database programmer, NT authentication is
    one of the obvious features. You made the right move.

    You need to have different installations for 95/98 and 2000. That is unless
    you use a complex install program. We use InstallShield Express and have
    setups for each as the support files can wreak havoc if installed on the
    wrong platform.

    Hi,

    I have just moved to Win2K Pro and I'm getting a problem that I've already
    had trying to run the application on WinNT on development enviroment. The
    "Run-Time error '429' : ActiveX Component Can't Create Object" occurs at
    the first reference the program makes to Remote Data Object (RDO). I've been
    trying to solve this problem for a long time unsuccessfully. The Microsoft
    Knowledge Base Article Q181852 tells that this may be due to a registration
    problem with the MSRDO20.DLL, but I've already registered that many times
    and the problem persists. I'm gonna return to Win95 until I can solve this
    problem. If you have suggestions, please let me know. Bye !
