Some function not works

Post by zsolt68 » 11 Aug 2019, 18:06

Hi,

I bought an used laptop from a second-hand shop with win 10 pro and comctl32.dll version 5.82. Unfortunately, some function of the listview not works in this version. I wouldn't like to replace this dll in the system folder if it possible. Can i download an another, higher version dll to a non-system folder? Can I use it rather than one which is registered in the system? If I can do it, what have to do? How can i link an another dll to this control without the OS's or system's dll's replace?

BR,
Zsolt

Hi,

Replacing system files or placing them in the application's folder is not the way to go.
I guess you want to use features of comctl32.dll 6. If this is the case you will need to equip your application with a manifest file. Have a look at the sample projects to see how to do this. You can also place such a manifest file next to VB6.exe. After a reboot, you should then be able to use features of comctl32.dll 6 from within the VB6 IDE.
