    VBasic 6 Install error

    What does it mean if you get the following error when installing VB just as it has gathered the reg # and it starting up? This was running it as Administrator.

    See VBasic 6 and Vista Home Premium - MSDN Forums <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    (There's an MSKB article about this problem under Windows XP: "16 Bit MS-DOS Subsystem" Error Message When You Install a Program, but I have no idea whether the suggestion given there works under Windows Vista)

    Hans:

    Although I do understand that the best case scenario would be to upgrade, I am not prepared right now to shell out several hundred dollars.

    That being the case, I truly appreciate your help, and yes, the second link had the answer. I worked perfectly.

    Thanks again.

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Why don't you investigate Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions? They are <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>. There may be some limitations in the various pieces but they should be well explained.
