    I have a VB6 App which has been "Packaged" ready for "Deployment". When I install it, the system says something like "The controls on you system are and older version and nedd to be upgraded" Click Yes to Upgrade and Reboot.

    I click yes and reboot but then:
    on Win 98 - the system will continue to install OK
    on Win 2000 - I keep getting the above message no matter how many times I reboot and cannot install at all.

    Any ideas why or how to overcome this B I G P R O B L E M.

    (All it means is that I can't install on a Win2000 platform (Ho Ho))

    There is one way I have found to overcome the problem - install VB6 on every machine needing to run my App. This works but is not exactly what I originally had in mind (plus MS would frown on this practice).
