|I have Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise version and a project that we have had for years at where I work. Everything has worked fine for a long time. Because of bloated and junked up Windows I had to crash about 2 months ago and re-install everything on my PC.|
So I re-installed VS 6.0 on my PC after everything else, all of a sudden when I launch my app I get a bunch of Component Licensing problems like the image below all over the place when I pull up a form to edit.
Every form has some component on it that does this. Then at the end I get a message saying there is a problem with the License.dat file I think it was. And it won't display any of those components at all on the form.
So I got fed up and installed it on an empty Win XP I have in VirtualBox. Hmmm everything works fine there, no licensing problems at all!!
So fine, for programming purposes and not junking up my PC I have created a win2k VirtualBox that is for programming in this system and application only. After installing SQL server and the program I copied the source over to the Box and then installed Visual Studio 6.0, fully mind you, not just VB.
Same problem, so why here and on my PC but not on the other VirtualBox with XP, which is what my system is?
Does anyone know of a way to fix this, I can only imagine that some files got copied wrong and screwed up. But why does it work on a clean system but not on this system that doesn't really have a lot on it, or mine??
