    General question about installing an application created in VB 6


    I have packed my application for distribution using the Package and Deployment
    wizard. Application is created in VB 6. When I am trying to install to some
    systems it’s giving me a message

    “Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your
    system. Click OK if you would like setup to update these files for you now.
    You will need to restart windows before you can run setup again. Click cancel
    to exit setup without updating system files.”

    When OK is clicked it will upgrade the system files and installs the application.
    But some of the clients who are using some older programs are concerned that
    if the system files are upgraded and if they still need the old system files
    what’s going to happen.
    Is there any way I could be able to know which system files are going to
    be upgraded so that I can restore the older version in some place? If you
    guys got any idea in this please help me out in this.

    Thanks in advance

    I have run into this issue myself and went to Microsofts Knowledge Base for
    the information. I don't remember exactly what the Article ID is but, basically
    what happens is the The system files are currently in use so in order to
    update them the computer must reboot. Prior to the reboot the new system
    files are stored in a temporary directory by the system and are then moved
    to there correct location during the reboot when the system files are not
    yet in use. Unfortunantly when you hit yes the computer automatically reboots
    and does not give you time to review the files that have been updated. If
    you search the Microsoft Knowledge Base I believe the artical I described
    above has information on what files are being updated.

    Hi, buddy!

    Look at the CAB files and make a list of files that you're distribuing.
    This list must have the date and version of this files. Then, all you have
    to do is compare your list with your customers PC before to install your
    app. But take care, because some previous versions will not work properly
    when taking place of newest versions. For sample: comctl32.ocx version 6
    doesn't work with if install an previous version.

    Good luck!
