Trouble with visual basic program in XP.

A friend who I can't get in touch with anymore wrote me a program in VisualBasic. It worked fine on my Win98 system but now gives me Error "50003" on XP. I have run

MSVBVM50.EXE
VBRun60.exe
vbrun60sp5.exe

to no avail, anyone got any other updates I can throw at it. "50003" is a generic error from what I can find so I am happy to try anything :)

Unfortunately, it's probably do to an API call that doesn't want
to behave under Win2000 / XP.

Do you know what version of VB it was coded in?

Have you tried to use the compatibility mode of XP? Go in the properties of the shortcut you use to run the program, go in the Compatibility tab, and make it run as Windows 98/ME

That's what this feature is for!

If it still doesn't work, you might be missing a DLL of controls the program is using...

Good idea, didn't work :(

Atleast I am getting Run-time Error "50003" now instead of just "50003"

Do you still have the installation of that program? Or it's only a zip with files you place in a directory yourself?

What's the program for? Is it graphical?

Then you're out of luck. I've done some research about that error, and it's something generic... telling you something is not working because you're missing something, but it isn't telling what.... sucks uh? The only way to fix that would be to make an installation set of files using the original VB Project. But you lost track of the guy...
