Unhappy VB6 IDE crashes when opening form view (Windows 8)


I am recently installed VB6 to modify my very old games.

To reproduce crash:
On Windows XP 32 bit, i create a new project, add a label or combobox, save and close the ide, then i open the project again and then double click on the form, VB6 disappears without giving any log or error message. On Windows 8 x64, it gives error message that says "visual basic 6 has stopped working" and give a details i paste below.

It does not crash when i add buttons to form, it crash if form contains label or combo box.
Compiling and running forms with just buttons, classes and bas modules are fine.

Code:

First, we should get this working on Windows XP, before verifying it on Windows 8.

Install SP6 for VB6:

Does that help?

Lightbulb The Solution

Thanks for reply, i had sp6 already installed.

After searching several hours on internet, i found the solution of this problem.
I copied msstdfmt.dll into syswow64 and registered it with regsvr32, problem no longer occur again.

I have seen so many people encounter this problem but they could not find any solution, i hope this thread will help them.

That worked for Windows 8... did you get it working for XP (or am I missing something)?

I was focusing on this (before digging into Win 8):

Wink solved

my solution fixed the problem for all versions of windows

For 32bit windows, the dll file should be in system32, for x64 it should be in syswow64, and registered with regsvr32 correctly with administrator rights

Thanks for the clarification, though I'm still confused as I had just installed VB6 Professional and SP6 on Windows XP SP3 a few months ago without any operational issues that you described. Perhaps some other prior install (Application or Windows Update) had added and registered msstdfmt.dll.

Shouldn't be necessary since installing VB6 installs that DLL. Unless you are using the pirated "Portable Edition" of VB6 that is floating around the warez sites.
