Solved vbskpro2.ocx will not load + windows 7 64-bit?

April 28, 2012 at 12:36:07
Specs: Windows 7 64-bit, i7-2600 turbo/8GB ram
I recently upgraded to a new computer running windows 7 64-bit. I have been doing software develop under XP pro and VB6. I have also been using VBSkinner very successfully. On the new machine I registered the vbskpro2.ocx without problem but, when I launch VB6, the ocx refuses to load? As a precaution I have tried registering it in BOTH System32 and SysWOW64 but it still will not load. Does anyone have any suggestions?

✔ Best Answer
Here are some links that may give you the clue that helps. Some of the points I noticed are :
1: Turn off UAC during install.
2: Make sure it is the latest.
3: Don't install everything.

Thank you for your suggestions. However, I have managed to solve the problem by setting VB6 properties to include Administrator Privileges. Apparently the failure to load was because either Windows or Norton was blocking it.

Thanks again.
