When i try to open a vb6 project in vb express, wizard stucks at step 5 and gives a lot of missing dll like msderun.dll and msde.dll.I have placed msderun.dll in C:\Program Files\Common Files\DESIGNER\msderun.dll and its working.... Now i have to place the other file. Can some one tell me that where i can place msde.dll...please write complete root. and also describe in brief the process of registering these files.

I don't know if it will help...but i think you may have to place the msde.dll at the same location as msderun.dll ( C:\Program Files\Common Files\DESIGNER\msderun.dll ) and then use the regsvr32 to register it. If you don't know how to use the regsvr32, here goes a "fast" explanation:
Register or unregister a DLL.
Syntax REGSVR32 [/U] [/S] [/C] [/I:[Command_Line]] DLL_Name REGSVR32 [/U] [/S] [/C] /N /I:[Command_Line] DLL_Name
Key /u Unregister Server. /s Silent - no dialogue boxes. /c Console output. /n Don't call DllRegisterServer /i Call DllInstall (or DllUninstall if /u is specified) Command_Line An optional command line for DllInstall
So, at the command line (Run), type this:
REGSVR32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\DESIGNER\msde.dll "

that worked but unfortunately i can not debug it. when i run it in the debug mode i find an error
A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in xyz.exe and application does not start.
What com object i need to add or ? Please give solution. what i think is that its trying find an internet connection or an activex control?
