Does someone know that you can run VB6.0 apps in Windows 3.1 and how to install the Runtime DLL. Thanks!

You would need the WIn32's at least, but there is no OLE2 for 16-bit Windows, which pretty much accounts for all of VB6, so you are pretty much out of luck.

Taken from Wikipedia:

Quote:
# Visual Basic 4.0 (August 1995) was the first version that could create 32-bit as well as 16-bit Windows programs. It also introduced the ability to write non-GUI classes in Visual Basic. Incompatibilities between different releases of VB4 caused installation and operation problems.
# With version 5.0 (February 1997), Microsoft released Visual Basic exclusively for 32-bit versions of Windows. Programmers who preferred to write 16-bit programs were able to import programs written in Visual Basic 4.0 to Visual Basic 5.0, and Visual Basic 5.0 programs can easily be converted with Visual Basic 4.0. Visual Basic 5.0 also introduced the ability to create custom user controls, as well as the ability to compile to native Windows executable code, speeding up calculation-intensive code execution.

Ok, VB4 being both 16 and 32 bit have NO bearing on VB6 apps running on Windows 3.1.
