VB 6.0 - Windows 11- Error in ADO - Help - Request - Reg

Tea Board Coonoor 1 Reputation point


Earlier, I was using VB 6.0 and SQL 2008 in Windows 7.

But now i have shifted to Windows 11 in a new PC.

So I have installed (after long struggle) VB 6.0 in my Windows 11 PC by studying lots of articles.

While loading my project in VB 6 and try to compile, the following error came;

"Compile Error. Cannot find project or Library". So I have download the "msado60_Backcompat_i386.tbl" and loaded in the VB 6.0 project references.

But still I am facing the same error above.

As per the KB of MS, I found that VB 6.0 may run in Windows 11 too.

Please help me to fix the issue.

Thanks & Regards,

    According to https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/visualstudio/visual-basic-6/visual-basic-6-support-policy although the VB6 runtime and certain files continue to be supported the VB6 IDE is NOT supported by Microsoft in Windows 11.
