Install - ok
Open/New project: ok
Save project: ok
make exe: ok
Deployment Wizard: ok
What does not
Data components: (I need to check this... I believe some step is missing in my installation)
System wide hotkeys (well, this is logic and not a fail)
What was not tested
Make a dll/ocx
Remember to install the VB6 SP6 too. I need to override the following libraries: advpack: For the Java Microsoft VM (and I think is needed to for the Deployment Wizard). msvcrt/ole32/oleaut32/psapi/rpcrt4/usp10: I see this recomended for other related products). I don't check if all is really needed, but with this all work. Without this, without this VB refuse to install/make exe/etc.
