Visual Basic Help

  1. Sep 1, 2010 #1
    I have VB5 on my old PC, and I want to use it on my new PC. Copied all the VB files, etc. When I tried to run I got "Cannot register msvbvm50.dll"
    So I did regsvr32 msvbvm50.dll and it DID register, but VB still will not run!
    Anybody know how I can fix this, so VB5 will run on my Vista machine?

    You're going to have to install it using the installation CD. Most programs won't work by just copying the files over from another computer.
