  • Hi Parveen Khatri,

    According to this case,  my understanding is that you want to calling a WCF Service via VB6 application.

    So, may be you can refer this link which will helpful to you.

    Using WCF in VB6?

    And you want your APP02 use authorization of APP01's service. If your WCF use username

    and password authorization. Then your app02 application need to provide a username and

    password to completed authentication.

    For more information, please refer to the following articles:

    2.Integrating WCF Services with COM+

    I hope that will be helpful to you.

    Best Regards,

  • You can use a VB.NET or C# program, a DLL as a proxy,  that can access the WCF service  that a VB6 program can consume and use.
