VISUAL BASIC 6 ENTERPRISE EDITION

By edem ·
I am trying to install VB6 on a Windows NT4.0
machine without success. The installation gets to 100% mark , tries to register dlls. The final error message that comes up is: "....cannot register msaddndr.dll. Installation was not successful"
I will appreciate an urgent solution to this problem. Please write to me at EDEM@DEMSEN.COM
Thank you.

NOTE: In some situations, you may need to search the local hard drive for the
Msaddndr.dll file, and then rename any files that you find to Msaddndr.123. When
you have done this, reinstall Visual Studio.
