Initially when I started the programs on the Win98 machine, I got the error " Run-time error '50003': Unexpected Error".
So I ran the installation program that VB 6.0 makes with its Package and Deployment Wizzard to update the files. When the OLEAUT32.dll gets updated during the installation from version 2.40.4275 to version 5.1.2600.2180 I get the error "The OLEAUT32.dll file cannot start. Check the file to determine the problem". That error shows up when windows starts, and when I try to start the programs.
At that point, the programs won't start and Explorer will open, but will not show anything in the window.
I have run all of the Windows Updates and the Visual Basic SP 6 and the Visual Studio SP 6. I can replace the OLEAUT32.dll with the original version and get back to the first error.
Any ideas on how to get the programs I compiled on the WinXP machine to run on Win98 machines?
