I also support Vb6 on Windows 10 and also use some of the old ComponentOne and TrueGrid (v.6x) components. I remember having this issue on my laptop, but can't remember how I got it resolved. I think I had to uninstall and reinstall the components.
There is one important thing, you must install the components using their installer...simply registering the ocx's/dll's will not work.
If it comes down to it, and you have to replace the grid component with something different, I'd seriously ask myself if it's not time to just bite the bullet and upgrade the project to .NET.
1. download vsflex8.ocx
2. Copy vsflex8.ocx to the SysWow64 folder.
3. Register this ocx that we just copied for it we do the following:
a) We create a file with extinction .bat (registerOCX.bat) within this file we record regsvr32 C: \ Windows \ SysWOW64 \ vsflex8.ocx (ocx path). And then we recorded.
b) Right click on the file and then click on run as administrator and you will receive a registration message.
4. Additionally I copy the dll’s and ocx to the SysWow64 folder, but it is no longer necessary to register:
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Slow Eddie I do not hare a recommendation but would very much like to ask for help installing VB6 on a Windows 7 64 bit machine. I have VB6 pro and when I lost my XP machine I lost the ability to write code in VB6 thanks Dwight
sorry for the delay but my email serve has been down for a week and I just got this.
Running the Setup program as an administrator, always worked for me. Once the VB6 is installed, go to the VB6 C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\vb6.exe and right click in the VB6 exe to set it up to run as administrator.
