How To Use

VBCMPFIX is very simple to use. Run the self extracting VBC.EXE program, which will extract two files:


Double click on VBCMPFIX.EXE from the Windows Explorer.

When VBCMPFIX launches, it will automatically detect which version of Visual Basic you have installed on your system. If you do not have Visual Basic installed, it will not allow you continue.

After it detects your version of Visual Basic, you can Fix Install or Quit. Choosing Fix Install will update your system so that the controls and components that come with your edition of Visual Basic will work. The controls and components that are fixed is dependent upon the edition of Visual basic 5.0 you have installed (see the table above).

After you have done this, close the utility and reboot your system. After rebooting, launch Visual Basic 5 and try using any controls you were having problems with.
