Can`t Run 16 Bit Windows Program

  L_Driver 21:50 23 Jan 2007

Hope someone can help. Have VB6 SP5 installed on Lap + Desk. D/loaded SP6 for same + installed OK on Lap. Attempted Install on Desk gives error mess as per subject field. Googling etc suggests poss. missing system files. Ran an SFC /SCANNOW which ran for some time and indeed requested OS CD ( XP HE ). If there were missing Sys files they should now be there ? ( run time of SFC would suggest there may have been "lost" sys files ).At any rate install still not working... same error message. Any ideas please ?

Solved. The situation was this error mess as stated was "Can`t install 16 Bit Windows Program" What happened was thus. The exec was a zipped file and I created a folder on C: called VB6_SP6 Extracted. That was the problem. Installer ( a 16 bit prog ) could not "see" path to the extracted install exe because of the space between SP6 and Extracted !
