 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

   !insertmacro VB6RunTimeInstall C:\vb6runtimes $AlreadyInstalled ;Replace C:\vb6runtimes with the location of the files

  • 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.
