By any chance had you planned on throwing these into an OpenDCL Grid :-)

Visual Studio 2005 - did have Vis Studio 2003 and Visual Studio .NET and Visual Studio 6 on here but removed.

Thanks Glenn. That latter tidbit would sure be nice, but no way I can test -- all my pcs, including work, have VB6 Enterprise installed.

Thanks x 2 Tim!

It's been a real hoot, a great technical challenge and the basis of other pet projects I've had for years (object interrogation that is).

I pasted your code into my VBAIDE and it won't run.  Looks like complete and total crap to me.  What are all the curvy things?

Command:

1. What version of Windows?
        Microsoft Windows
        Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_qfe.070227-2300 : Service Pack 2)
2. What version of AutoCAD?
        AutoCAD 2008
        B.51.0(UNICODE)
3. Have you ever run the VBAIDE?
        Yeppers
4. What path on your machine hosts tlbinf32.dll?
        Search is complete.  There are no results to display.
5. Do you have Visual Studio 6 installed on an active drive?
        No, haven't installed since the move.


Hmmm...guess I should read through the entire thread before posting.  You probably don't need the info, but just in case...

Thank you Bob, it's good info.

It supports my supposition that machines that have had Visual BASIC 6 installed sport the dll, otherwise no.
