Because this problem only occurs at design time during the compilation process, you can rename the SP3 version of VBA6.dll in the Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98 folder and copy the SP2 version into the same location if you need to compile your project. You should get the SP3 version back when you package your project.
