Make VB6 Action can't find VB6.exe
For some reason VBP can't automatically locate VB6.exe. But it is in the usual / default location:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\VB6.EXE

What factors determine how that locator process works? Why might this fail?

The Make VB6 action looks for the default value under the following registry keys:



and if found, strips off anything following .exe and uses that filename for the VB6 executable.

You may need to repair or reinstall VB6 if this isn't working.

My registry has "Visual Basic Project" instead of "VisualBasic.Project". Strange.

VB6 works fine otherwise.

In v10.0, the Make VB6 action will also look for the associated executable if not found under the previously mentioned locations.

Unable to determine VB compiler location
Trying to use VBPro to build on Windows Server 2016 box and get the error:
Unable to determine VB compiler location
If I run vb6 IDE it is able to compile without any issues.

So what can I do to resolve this or what can I do to try and see what the issue is?
