I just got Win7 Pro 64 installed on my new computer last night. Will the instructions shown work with 64 bit Windows?
I have heard that VB6 IDE is not supported with 64bit.

One problem I sometimes need to register 3rd party ocx files but in most cases Windows 7 32bit does not allow copying them to Windowssystem32 for registering but place the in the incompatible folder.
This process has been tested on Windows 7, both 32 bit and 64 bit, with no problems.
Note: I've updated this process with information from the comments (below the post).
I am developing an app to keep track of all my movie files ant to also play them with either WMP or Gom from inside the App. By: mwrob Date: 2010-07-20 I followed the instructions and was able to get VB6 installed just fine on a Windows 7 64 bit system.
Applying SP6 after installation of VB6 has posed no challenges, either.
I've gotten around each one but this one now has me stumped. Could the fact that I didn't shut it off before starting your process have caused the computer to lock up and require a hard shut down at step 10? You MUST also use the regsvr32file in the Sys WOW64 folder (not the one in the System32 folder) to register the files.
The app uses an Access Database and has lots of forms using ADO data controls. Thanks for your help By: Forty Pound Head Date: 2010-06-23 I am currently attending HP techforum in Las Vegas, and as such am currently experiencing limited connectivity. Some things I ran into that I didn't see mentioned is that when registering OCX and DLL files the file MUST be placed in the C: Windows Sys WOW64 directory. One other tip is to ALWAYS install everythig as "administrator".
FYI, I do have access to an msdn subscription if I need to download something different.
