Default Windows 7 Install : Could not execute LINE.EXE


As the title says: Could not execute LINE.EXE

I got VB6 sort of installed on my Win7 machine, but while I can run programs through the IDE, I can't compile them at this point, I get an error message "Could not execute LINE.EXE" from the IDE.

Apparently I'm missing something somewhere and don't have things quite right.

Er, could that be LINK.EXE?

I'm not sure what to suggest except to try to uninstall everything and start over. When you install incorrectly a lot of things get messed up that can be hard to unravel.

Yes, I meant LINK.EXE oops.

Considering what a pain it was to get it installed, has someone somewhere posted a set of instructions which works?

Firstly, most recommendations on the web are dead wrong, or based on muddy thinking. There are only a few cases where more convoluted solutions are required.

Try this:
When installing VB6, right-click on Setup.exe and select 'Run as administrator'.

When installing Service Pack 6, also right-click on the Setup.exe and select: 'Run as administrator'.

After installation, find and right-click on the VB6 shortcut (in Start menu) or the exe itself (in Program Files x86), select Properties and set the Compatibility of VB6.exe to, you guessed it: 'Run this program as an administrator'.

There may be some special handling depending on if you are installing VB6 from a Visual Basic 6 CD (above worked for me on 7 Pro) or a Visual Studio CD (might require some special Java handling, but it seems to me there is an easy work-around for that).
