Default VB 6 Crash

Hello all. Got a problem. whenever I start my VB, After the splash screen, the application does not load further. It simply crashes.

Further, No application which I coded in VB runs. it quits whenever i start to run the application.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall VB. But that doesn't help because neither uninstallation or installation happens.

My last option would be to format the system and start from OS installation. But as I'm working on Windows 2003 server, I'm not authenticated to do a format of my system without legal approval of my authorities. And that again is a lengthy process which I'm trying to avoid.

So any help in this regard is greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance.

- Sai

This sounds like a case for Microsoft.

Try renameing the folders where VB is so that the setup operation cannot find it, and re-install. (Just a shot in the dark...)

Tx Brian. But you know what?? I deleted the whole folder where VB is installed and tried an installation. The installation doesn't complete. It ends abruptly.

Defntly a case for microsoft. I know that some DLL/OCX or similar system file is corrupted. Got to find out which one and then replace it.

having my fingers crossed. Too much of a pain to format and reinstall the server..!!
