Can VB4 and VB6 coexist?
I uave Visual Studio with MSDN ver 6 installed on my main PC (W2K) and have to interface with a 16 bit DLL for a product that I am using. The product developers tel me that VB4 in 16 bit mode is required to access the DLL, since it was written in that mode (quite a while ago). I'd llike to upgrade the interface software but it would cost me about $500! I have VB4 and wonder if I can put it on the computer also - hence the question about having both VB4 and VS6 installed at the same time. Or should I use a different box then just copy the .exe when I have it ready? Thanks, Bill Allen 678-717-8590 allenbh *at* alltel.net

Hi Mike, Happy Easter! Thanks for the great reply! I want to avoid confusion or overwriting of controls, DLL's or other objects. A VB4 package is on its way (cheap$) and I will be time travelling to the past soon enough. I will make sure it installs in a distinctly separate folder. Thanks, Bill

Administering Session Pooling in Mts
I have created a com object in Delphi which is registered in COM+. The object contains the doa session and query objects which are used to connect to an oracle database and query the data., I am having trouble administering the session pool timeout which is supposedly supported by MTS (which is included in COM+). The connected sessions seem to be timing out after about 1 second of inactivity. I want to bump up this time., Any help on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

calling C dll from VB6: parameter passing
Hi,, I am calling a C dll function from VB6. It's not showing any error when linking to the dll and the function is called properly. But when I print the parameter values inside the dll function, correct values are not found. , , the C function prototype is:, void Analyze_Data (char* goldFile, char* capturedFile, int tolerance);, , I am calling from VB as:, , Private Declare Function Analyze_Data _, Lib "U:\new-Viewer\Viewer\analysis1.dll" ( _, ByVal gold_file_name As String, _, ByVal capture_file_name As String, _, ByVal Tolerance As Long _, ), , Analyze_Data(gfile, capfile, tol), , When I print the values from the dll function, the first parameter is always emtpy, the second parameter is getting the value of the actual first parameter that is passed and third parameter is garbage., , Please let me know if anyone knows why the parameters are not passed properly.

Look at MSDE - a Royalty free SQL Sserver engine that comes with VB6.0, MSDN or MS Office 2000 premium., If you have one of these, you can use the MSDE engine free of charge! ( it's basically a Full Fledged SQL Server without the GUI ), Search for MSDE on MSDN.com

Unique Random Number
I am working with access (not one of the DB that I know very well). I am trying to generate a 16 digit unique random number as the key. Anyone have any suggestions.

Access also has an AutoNumber field type, if you are actually building your database design in Access. This will automatically generate a unique number for each new record, without any coding on your part. I don't have Access in front of me right now, but I believe it's a type Long.
