Additional Comments

Installation is tricky you have to search the install for all .dll's and copy them to wine system32 & run in win me version for install. Install visual basic runtimes & service packs. oleaut32 must be overridden to native, builtin for proper operations. I personaly also needed to use vb6cli.exe from microsoft to fix winsock & copyed all ocx's from installer to vb6 template/projects folder. After install you should have made a app setting in wineconfig for vb6 for the dll override you may also set it to run as winxp. Also you will need to install mono for wine with winetricks to fix issues with reading .frx files. winedoors and winetricks are very handy tools to speed up getting this running. You may or may not be able to do the full install from the setup.exe you may have to use acmboot.exe but it will install if you get any strange errors wile installing you may need to install mdac or dcom keeping in mind that MSDN doesn't install, this is normal.
