    Compile error cannot find project or library

    I have developed an application several years which is still be used today without any problems.
    The problem I am having with the code started when I took all of my projects from my old laptop and transfered them to my new laptop. All of my projects that I have tried to run seem to work great except this one. When I hit the run key i will get a "Complie error cannot find project or library" error, when I click ok it will highlight the "Right$" function in my code. Sometimes it will highlight the word "Error" in my error handlers.
    Here is what my references are in this order;

    VB for Applications
    VB runtime objects and procedures
    VB objects and procedures
    OLE Automation

    Does anyone have any suggestions?? Any help would be appreciated!

    thanks,

    Jason

    What OS do you have now. Not the same? Thought so...

    Did you install SP6 for VB6?

    Running Vista 64 now. I do have SP6 installed.
    I created a new project with this code;

    Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim str_string As String

    str_string = "This is a test"
    Text1.Text = Right$(str_string, 4)


    End Sub

    It compiled fine. but it was also created in this machine. My other projects that I transfered work fine as well.

    Make a reference to the VB6 Runtime Library from your other program.

    I ran into something similar today with the Mid() function. I did not dive into it but the project had some references to Quick Books and QB was not on the machine. Odd that the compiler would complain about the Mid() function. At first I thought something was broken but I loaded another project and no issues. I then loaded the questionable project on a machine with Qb and no problems.

    It is not a problem but I did find it rather odd.

    Thanks for all your help. I found issue. In the References, there was a missing reference that went to the crystal data object. Once I unchecked it, everything worked great.
