Microsoft Vb6 Runtime Download

  1. Is the VB6 runtime still supported on Windows Server 2016? Microsoft VB6 programming support (VB6 Support Statement, VB6 Programming IDE Installer).
  2. The applications that are created with the Visual Basic´s programming language need an external library to be able to run them. If the functioning of a developed program with this language is not the awaited one, try and install the libraries and components that Visual Basic 6 Runtime Files provide.

What are the Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files?

The Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files include select ActiveX control OCX files, libraries, and tools that are delivered together with the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE media and as an online release. Typically, the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE or the Microsoft.com website installs these files on the development system. Then, the developer redistributes these files together with the developer's applications.
As of April 8, 2008, support for the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE has ended. However, Microsoft still offers support for select runtime extended files that are distributed together with applications. For more information about support for the Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files, visit the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) website:

Support Statement for Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vbrun/ms788708.aspx

After I install this cumulative update rollup, do I have to install the latest security update?

This cumulative update rollup includes and supersedes all security updates. Therefore, after you install this cumulative update rollup, you do not have to install the latest security update.

Do I really need this cumulative update rollup?

Yes. This cumulative update rollup contains the previously mentioned security fixes and several other stability fixes and performance fixes for the ActiveX controls that are included in the Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files. Additionally, the ActiveX controls that are included in this cumulative update rollup will be the baseline for any future updates for these ActiveX controls. This includes security updates and hotfixes for these ActiveX controls. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you install this cumulative update rollup to have the latest supported baseline for these ActiveX controls.

I am a third-party software developer, and I use the ActiveX controls in my application. What do I have to do?

If you redistribute the ActiveX controls, make sure that you update the version of the ActiveX controls that are installed together with your application by downloading this cumulative update rollup. For more information about the best practices for using redistributed components, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

835322 Applications that bypass globally serviced side-by-side assemblies may be vulnerable to issues that are fixed by a Microsoft software update

Microsoft Vb6 Runtime Download Free

I am developing software that contains a redistributable ActiveX control. What do I do?


Install this cumulative update rollup for your development software. If you redistributed an ActiveX control together with an application, issue an updated version of the application to your customers. In the updated version of the application, include the updated version of the file in this cumulative update rollup for your development software.

Yes, believe it or not, there are a lot of companies that still developing or supporting applications developed in Visual Basic 6.0.

I was onsite in two companies that were facing the exactly same error when they were trying to install the VB6.0 on Windows 10. The VB6 was freezing in the installation step 'Setup is updating your system':

By default, the only the TrustedInstaller account has full control permission on this hive:


To fix this issue, it is necessary to grant full access to the Admin user (used to install the VB6) on the registry key: HKCRRDSServer.DataFactoryClsid


Download And Install Visual Basic 6 On Windows 10

Once the VB6.0 is installed, it is also necessary to run it elevated, as administrator, in the first launch.

After have installed the VB6, don't forget to restore the hive permissions.

I hope that it helps.

I have VB6 enterprise version set up but it is not able to complete its installation.(Hang)
I have tried installer from following link :http://nuke.vbcorner.net/Tools/VisualStudio6Installer/tabid/93/language/it-IT/Default.aspx

The condition for above installation you need to have msdn image files ready which i don't have. How can I get VB6 installed on Windows 10?

This should work for you, but make sure you read through all the comments as the zero-byte file seems to have stopped working on later builds so there are some workarounds others shared. Though honestly, if all it is doing is stopping a reboot, I don't see why that matters. Copied main text here in case link dies some day.

Stop the Reboot

Ms Vb6 Runtime Download

As in my previous tutorials for installing VB6 on Windows 7 and Windows 8, you'll want to create a zero byte file called MSJAVA.DLL. Creating this file in C:Windows will prevent the need for a reboot at the end of the installation. If you're not familiar with how to create a zero-byte file, just click that link back there.

Let's Get Started

The first thing that you'll notice after inserting your installation media is the Program Compatibility Assistant popping up with a warning of known compatibility issues. Close it - we need to run setup manually. If you have autorun turned off, you'll get this pop up when you run setup.

Navigate to the installation media, and find the setup program. Right click setup.exe, and select Run As Administrator. Very important! Setup needs to do some registry twiddling and register some items with Windows, and won't be able to do it without the necessary permissions.

Simply click the option that reads Run the program without getting help, and the main setup wizard will start.

The first few screens are the usual stuff, things you've seen before:

  • Welcome Screen - Gives you the opportunity to vew the readme. Just click Next unless your really want to read it!
  • EULA - Yep, it's the End User License Agreement. Scroll it, then signal your acceptance in the appropriate radio button, then click Next.
  • Product Number and USer ID - This is where you put in your user name, company name and product ID. Fill in the fields as you see fit, and click Next to continue with the wizard.
  • What to install - Two options here; VB6 Enterprise Edition, or Server Applications. I am going with the first option
  • Common Installation folder - I accepted the default for this: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual StudioCommon
  • Welcome and Warning - Copyright protection, inability to update files in use, etc. Click Continue to move on
  • Visual Basic 6.0 Enterprise Setup - This is where the actual installation of VB6 begins. Your PID is shown on the screen, and you are invited to write it down if you have not already. Click Ok to continue

Main Installation

On the first screen of the ACM Setup, leave the installation folder at the default, and click the Custom option for setup. The next screen will be the options list.

I don't use SourceSafe, so I cleared the checkbox. If you use SourceSafe, then by all means leave it checked for installation.

Very important (editor's note: see comment at the end) - Clear the checkbox for Data Access. If you don't, set up will hang at the end of the installation. Not sure for the real reason, but the theory is that setup is trying to register with Windows on a non-existent service. Clearing the Data Access checkbox stops this registration attempt.

Click Continue to carry on with the installation process. At this point, if you didn't create the empty MSJAVA.DLL file in C:Windows, you'll get a restart Windows prompt. Go ahead and restart if you need to, I'll wait.

In any event, you'll get an MSDN installation wizard. I decline this, since much more information is available online anyway.

Microsoft Visual Basic

Now you'll get an option Server Setups dialog. If you want to install BackOffice, Visual SourceSafe Server, or SNA server, you have the opportunity at this point. I don't use these items, so I just click Next to blow by it.

Finally, we get to the last screen of the wizard. Un-check the Register Now checkbox, and click Finish.

Getting VB6 Running for the First Time

You can find the new shortcuts in your start menu, under the usual Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 program group. You might be tempted to just fire it up straight away, and you can. But, you'll receive a nasty error about Automation, Error accessing the registry. You can blow by the error, but you'll just keep getting it every time you fire up VB6, and some>1616 gold badges68 silver badges108 bronze badges

Update to my above post about the Help facility. Even though I installed the MSDN Library using the CDs and copied an old winhlp32.exe from an XP machine, that allowed me to view '.HLP' files from Win10, but from within VB6 no help worked. Finally, I was able to go to this website and download vshelp.exe.

How Do I Install Visual Basic On Windows 10

I got VS6/VB6 Running under Windows 10 by following the many posts on the Internet involving 1) lowering UAC + REGEDIT check, 2) copy a real MSJAVA.DLL from the VS Install Disk 1 IE4 Folder (un-7-Zip MSJAVX86.EXE) dragging MSJAVA.DLL to all the Windows SYSTEM32/SYSWOW64 folders (a zero byte MSJAVA.DLL no longer works), 3) placing and REGSVR32'ing dx7vb.dll (in the same folders as prior step), then using MSCONFIG to boot Win10 in Safe mode, and running the install from the original MSDN CDs. [No CDs? Read on]

For VB6 you only need DISC 1, both MSDN CDs, and the Service Pack 6 (get it on the Internet). WARNING: The install for DISC 1 will become 'Not Responding'. In my case, after an hour, I figured it must be done, so let Win10 close it as a 'not responding window', and it went on with the MSDN and it worked. (you can also install MSDN standalone from the CDs later) If you can't get the SP6 update to work try by putting it on a Thumbdrive in the root and call the Volume name VS6SP6. In fact, for VB6 if you don't have the CDs anymore, you can create CDs with the contents of each install folder provided you give the CD Volume Label names as follows:

VB6 Disc 1 Volume Label: VSP600ENU1

VB6 Disc 3 Volume Label: DN600ENU1

VB6 Disc 4 Volume Label: DN600ENU2

When done, restore MSCONFIG to normal boot then raise your UAC back up.

One Glitch, I've not yet fixed. '.HLP' files are not supported under Windows 10, so no VB6 Help will be available (that's MSDN). However, I've read (but not tried) that I can copy WINHLP32.EXE from an XP machine to Win10 Windows dir. But first I've gotta get my old XP machine running.

For now, I'm re-developing all my VB programs (without the HELP facility) under Windows 10 Home Edition just fine and merrily doing my compiles again!

Hope this helps.
