    Sheridan Controls corrupt in VB6 in Vista

    My Vista laptop has had VB6 environment on it for about 3 years. Today it stopped working. If I do anything with a Sheridan control it stops working (hangs) and Microsoft says it will try to find a solution.

    I've reinstalled VB6, done the SP6 update, the vbctrls.reg, and done the vb6cli.exe. Any other ideas or help is much appreciated.

    Re: Sheridan Controls corrupt in VB6 in Vista

    David, really appreciate you looking at this on the weekend.

    I thought reinstalling VB6 would reinstall everything. That's all I've ever had to do on a virgin computer. Also, my VB6 apps (.exe) seem to run fine which use the Sheridan controls. Is there something special to just reinstall the "tools"?

    I believe the problem is with the registry (which maybe reinstalling something may fix) concerning threed32.ocx. I've tried to unregister and reregister threed32.ocx and I get "The module threed32.ocx was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with the error code 0x80040200" I did this from elevated cmd prompt in c:\windows\system32 as regsvr32 /u threed32.ocx and regsvr32 threed32.ocx Then I tried it on regsvr32 /u tabctl32.ocx and it DID work. But when I tried to reregister regsvr32 tabctl32.ocx it gave similar message but with error code 0x8002801c
