NT and VB6

By BigBadWolf ·
If i create a program in the NT environment with vb6 will the program be compatible with 98/95 machines or do i need to compile my completed projects in 95 with the NT addons included. I am looking at moving all my material to NT, but have not beenin the biz long enough to know if my programming will still be usable by 95 users and 98 users.
Thank you for your time.

Sure your programs will work well on NT and 95 and 98! if you are using data connector MDAC 2.5 which works ony 95/98 machines may not work well on NT. But if you get the latest version of MDAC 2.7, this problem will be sorted out.

Initially you might experience a few problems with dll & drivers, but once you get the later version of dlls & drivers, this problem will get sorted out. All drivers are bacjward compatible so anything that works on NT will work on 95/98.

NT is designed for stability, security and large scale development. Develop your whole application and use Visual Studio Installer to create a MSI package with Windows Installer. This takes care of components, versions, registrations, GUIDs, COM porting etc. But if you use MDAC 2.7 this package does not install full eventhough the success message appears if the client does not have IE 5 or above. So make sure the client has IE 5 or above and use Windows installer. You'll have 100% sure success.
All the best
