Hi,

I've created a setup for a visualbasic 6 project I made.
The setup automatically creates uninstall but when I try to uninstall my piece of software ... it probably deletes a few DLLs! I noticed it because my excel97, after uninstalling my software, show warnings about missing DLLs!
As a try, I reinstalled my software using the same setup, and Excel works again without any warning. Probably the DLLS are included in the VisualBasic runtime or In other embedded modules in the SF6 installer/uninstaller. And are wrongly removed during uninstall!

I'm using the 6.0.0.0 version. Didn't try if 6.0.0.1 has the same problem too.

Thank you!

Seems to be a bug in the VB6 runtime module (and still there in 6.0.0.1). You may temporarly fix it yourself until the Indigo developers bring out an official patch:


Open %SUFDIR%\Runtimes\vb6sp5\vb6sp5.sf6 with SUF
Mark all files installed to %SysDir% and open file properties
Go to Advanced and check Shared/System file
Save and close vb6sp5.sf6
Rebuild your installer


Hope this helps!
