B.4 Visual Basic 6 Run-Time Files
A new VB6RunTime.nsh header file is available for the setup of the VB6 run-time files. To obtain the latest run-time files, download vb6runtime.zip and extract this file.
!include VB6RunTime.nsh Var AlreadyInstalled Section "-Install VB6 run-time files" ;Add code here that sets $AlreadyInstalled to a non-zero value if the application is already installed. For example: IfFileExists "$INSTDIR\MyApp.exe" 0 new_installation ;Replace MyApp.exe with your application filename StrCpy $AlreadyInstalled 1 new_installation: !insertmacro VB6RunTimeInstall C:\vb6runtimes $AlreadyInstalled ;Replace C:\vb6runtimes with the location of the files SectionEnd Section "-un.Uninstall VB6 run-time files" !insertmacro VB6RunTimeUnInstall SectionEnd
- You may have to install additional files for such Visual Basic application to work, such as OCX files for user interface controls.
- Installation of the run-time files requires Administrator or Power User privileges. Use the Multi-User header file to verify whether these privileges are available.
- Add a Modern UI finish page or another check (see IfRebootFlag) to allow the user to restart the computer when necessary.
