I used to have VisualBasic 6 on my Window10 ( 64 bit  ) and I removed it.

Since then I cannot install VisualBasic 6 anymore and I wonder if something went wrong with

the removal of VisualBasic.

After inserting the VisualBasic DVD it is asking to run the set up.When I do that

nothing happens anymore.


Can anybody provide some hints and especially: how to make sure that every trace of

my previous VB6 is removed.

The first thing I'd try is copying the DVD content to a temporary folder somewhere on your disc drive and running the setup from there.


I have seen this work, and I'll never understand exactly why, but it's simple enough to try.
