Hopefully this question will be easily answered. I am not completely sure if I am posting in the correct area but because I saw Visual Basic mentioned in another posting I decide to give it a go. I know that VBRUN600.dll is a module used when running windows applications created with Visual Basic.
My question is just straight up if my computer has a VBRUN500.dll can I use that instead or in place of VBRUN600.dll. and if so how would I do that? In other words I know that VBRUN500.dll is a module used when running windows applications created with Visual Basic as well.

If you are missing v6, most likely you can obtain it as a download from download.microsoft.com, but if I recall correctly, Windows XP and up come with those runtimes already, meaning it is not really necessary. If your OS is XP or up and you are missing a runtime, run sfc /scannow.

How is it going with Jose’s suggestion?
It seems that you have got your answer here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vbgeneral/thread/c113c469-c97c-4c94-ae34-af8230c6e6e0/#36f5f939-af80-46c0-b18b-9583a3aeec7a.
As far as I know, MSDN Forums have no longer support Visual Basic 6 or former, but there are many third-party support sites that do. The link below lists some of them.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
