Visual Studio SP4 Has Been Released!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------
MS releases Visual Studio Service Pack 4! - Visual Studio® 6.0 Service Pack
4 (SP4) provides the latest updates to Microsoft® Visual Studio 6.0
development system and its component products. Service Pack 4 is recommended
for all Visual Studio 6.0 users, and is currently available free for
registered customers.

I have installed this Service Pack and have found only one problem with it.
For some reason on Win2K, when writing COM components in the VB design
environment, if you add or change an interface and run the component, VB
does not update the registry properly. To fix this, just un-reference your
component from the application that is using it and re-reference it.

To download SP4, go to
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/sp/vs6sp4/default.asp>.
