Eclipse Renewal Project Loading Errors


I was trying to open eclipse renewal source in vb6 and am getting the following errors:

While trying to open the project:

While trying to run it:

Any idea what can cause these ?

P.s: I am not using an portable version am using Visual Basic 6 Professional version.


Try this first:

  1. Open the .vbp file in a text editor (notepad is fine)
  2. Find the line with mscomctl.ocx (it should look similar to this Object={831FDD16-0C5C-11D2-A9FC-0000F8754DA1}#2.0#0; MSCOMCTL32.OCX)
  3. Change the 2.0 or 2.1 and change it the the other value (2.0 -> 2.1 and 2.1 -> 2.0)
  4. Save and try opening it with VB6 again

If that doesn’t work, try running the following command in an Admin Command Prompt
regsvr32 mscomctl.ocxregsvr32 mscomctl32.ocx

If that doesn’t work, try installing VB6 SP6

If that doesn’t work, try reinstalling the runtimes

I was having trouble with mscomctl.ocx myself. My fix was this:
-Download a fresh copy of mscomctl.ocx here:
-Extract it to User/Windows/SysWOW64 (if 64 bit) or User/Windows/System32 (if 32 bit)
-Open command prompt as admin and type these commands, hitting enter after each line:
cd %systemroot%\syswow64
regsvr32 /u mscomctl.ocx
regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx
-(If 32 bit system, replace the syswow64 with system32)

Give that a shot.
