We can't help: we have no idea what the applications are, what they do, how they do it, how the environments are configured, or any actual information about them other than "I have an app. It works on computer A, but doesn't on Computer B".

You need to start with the app itself, so contact the author / company that produced it and ask them for help.

Sorry, but we really can't help you at all with this!

It's highly likely that you are using something from the Extended Runtime package for VB6 which is not shipped with the OS and must be distributed with your application (or separately downloaded to the target machine).

You can get hold of the relevant files from Microsoft Support via this link : Description of the cumulative update rollup for the Visual Basic 6.0 Service Pack 6 Runtime Extended Files[^]

There is further information on the support of VB6 going forward on this link : Support Statement for Visual Basic 6.0 | Microsoft Learn[^]

Edit: In the past, when trouble-shooting why VB6 applications were not working, I found these tools invaluable: Sysinternals - Windows Sysinternals | Microsoft Learn[^]
