    Oh my god i've broken it! (VB6)

    I have a VB project that uses a 3rd party grid component. I was testing the latest version and accidentaly saved the main project with this latter dll installed, now I can't get the project to load when using the old dll.
    Is there anything I can do to get the app working with the older dll again?

    Regards,

    AFAIK your only option is to rebuild the Project with the old references. On the basis of what you say, you should be able to start with a blank project, set the components/references to the "old standards" and then import all the forms, modules etc. from the updated version. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>That should be fairly painless - subject to positioning the grid component.

    Genius idea - I didnt think of that.

    I still havent managed to fix it, but I do have a backup plan. I've made some neat functionality only available in the latter version so if it comes to it i'll work on selling the boss the new functionality instead :-)
    First i'll give your method a go. Thanks.
