PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: 98SE
Problem Application Name & Version: C++
Problem Hardware Make & Model: scanner
Error Messages: runtime error




Keep getting C++ runtime errors.

So I updated to version 6 sp5

Is this OK for 98 SE

Do I need to install all the previous packs?

why does advpack.dll give so much trouble?

Hi,

What did you update to version 6 SP5?

Microsoft's service packs usually includes previous service packs.

What version of advpack.dll do you have?
What's the make and model of your scanner, which I assume is what is causing your runtime errors.

This article was previously published under Q194022
SUMMARY
Service packs are the means by which Microsoft distributes bug fixes. Service packs keep a product current. Service packs include updates and may include system administration tools, drivers, and additional components, which are bundled for easy downloading. Service packs are cumulative; each new service pack contains all the fixes that exist in previous service packs, as well as any new fixes. You do not need to install a previous service pack before you install the latest one. For example, you do not need to install Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 4 (SP4) before you apply Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 5 (SP5).

Visual Studio 6.0 service packs affect the Professional and Enterprise Editions of the following products:
Visual Studio 6.0
Visual Basic 6.0
Visual C++ 6.0
Visual FoxPro 6.0
Visual J++ 6.0
Visual SourceSafe 6.0


SUMMARY
VBRun60sp5.exe is a self-extracting executable file that installs the latest versions of the Microsoft Visual Basic run-time files required by all applications created with Visual Basic 6.0. The files include the fixes shipped with Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 5.
MORE INFORMATION
The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

VBRun60sp5.exe

Release Date: February 27, 2001

Hi,

Runtime files are used to enable your system to run apps written in Visual Basic.

Installing VBRun60sp5.exe actually downgraded key DLLs including Advpack.dll which were installed during an Internet Explorer installation. I would re-install IE to get these files back to the correct version.

As an example, what versions should I have on a 98SE system?

Similarly, it seems to have actually fixed my runtime GP faults!

Ain't computers just so satisfying  :-)

No unfortunately and thanks for the versions. I'm at a loss at how the installer did not alert me to the retro installation.

I have had some serious GP faults and crashes since, maybe it what you have suggested. Lets see

Please leave this forum open as when I get to having a good look at my system.

I will install IE5.5 again and let you know if the situation is resolved.

Just for reason sake, I have had a huge problem history with 'advpack.dll' in the past. What does it do and why is it connected problems with failed shut downs?

With thanks...

I truly believe I will never master these things!
