First of all, is there a reason that you are using VC6? The environment was built for Win98 and was already slightly dated at the time of WinXP (didn't always function 100%). It might be wise to make the switch to Visual C++ 2010 (Express Edition for home use).
At any rate, if you're stuck with VC6 for a reason, installing the service packs can help increase stability, compatibility and security, so it's a good advice to install them.
To run the studio in elevated mode is a bit bothersome, but can be done by right-clicking the executable or shortcut to the executable and selecting "Run as Administrator".
There is no easy way to run it elevated when you double click a project file from explorer, unfortunately.
I know Visual Studio 2007 even came with the advice to run elevated on Vista/Win7 (along with the advice to upgrade to 2010 to avoid this and other issues), so that's why it's probably useful for VC6 too.
Another thing, try to avoid navigating to Libraries inside VC6 file browse dialogs. I've seen several pre-Win7 applications crash when trying to navigate to a Library (such as the Documents library which includes both the My Documents folder and the Public Documents folder).

Finally, you can try playing around with the Compatibility settings, such as setting its environment to WinXP (or Win98) and seeing if that helps any.

Hope any of this helps. Best advice in this text is: go to a newer version of Visual Studio if you can.
