So I ran into this same problem http://www.eclipseorigins.com/community/index.php?/topic/128839-run-time-error-2005530516-8876086c-automation-error/
When trying to run a custom version of EO on my new little HP mini 5101. I did what the suggestions said and now it works. But I have concerns. Didn’t I just delete something that someone else might have needed on their computer?
Isn’t there a way of fixing this that doesn’t require VB6 and the source files? I mean I’m not going to be giving a copy of my source to every person I want to play the game and not every person playing my game will have VB6.
So what happens when they have the same problem or a related one?
