Linking Visual Studio 6.0 and Latest MSDN
I have installed VS 6.0 and the Latest MSDN (entire collection locally on the hard drive). But when I launch help from within VC++ 6.0 or VB 6.0, the following error message is displayed
I think you have to go back to the October 2001 edition to work with VS6.
Yep. VS 6 only works with MSDN from October 2001. All MSDN libraries from that point onward are VS.NET compatible only.
That's correct, IIRC Microsoft was advising at the time that VS6 users should retain the October 2001 version. Also, any newer version doesn't include documentation for VS6 and its language versions, only for VS.NET -- so it wouldn't be much use anyway.
Ahoy Mr Nahr...
Reinstall. That seems to be an ongoing thing for Windos users.
Thank You All for your valuable responses.
