Default VB 6 Application deployment across platform


I have developed a VB 6 database application under Windows XP and created a package for deployment. While installing on a PC with Windows 2000, It does not install and system keep re-booting.

Could anyone help me in figuring out the problem, I know we need to copy few files from windows 2000 but I do not have the file list.

Dear shujath

For successful installation of VB6.0 database application, use Visual Studio
Installer (VSI) which creats a package on the project with .msi extension.
This installer is very powerful and has very user-friendly UI to interact and
set the properties. This Installer knows only two values

0 - do nothing
1- successful installation
It never allowes the system to crash.


Check this link, here you can download the VSI 1.1 and build a new package
with it. you will never get any problem from this like as you said

With Regards,
Raghavendra Mudugal
