Yes, you are correct. My comment was based on MS saying they would continue to support VB6 until..... VB6 is not supported 'as is' on current OSes. After adding in missing support modules in the build and installation process, applications could run for the most part on Windows 10. Some clients complain that the code does not work on Windows 11, but I don't have a Windows 11 system to test it on. I use Visual Installer to build my install files and asked them to test an install on Windows 11. They said it installed fine, so I don't know why one client had a problem.

Another technical problem is that before Windows 10, you could get the full path to an executable by going to the registry entry "HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\app paths\<programname>" where <programname> is the file name of the application, like "Outlook", for example. Not anymore!
