Known issues

In versions of Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 later than Visual Basic 6.0 Service Pack 6 (SP6), the Visual Basic Package and Deployment Wizard obtains the Oleaut32.dll file from the following location:
VisualBasic_Installation_Folder\Wizards\PDWizard\Redist\
This folder contains a single copy of the Oleaut32.dll file. Software vendors and software developers can use this file for all operating systems that are supported by Visual Basic 6.0.

This security update contains multiple operating-system-specific versions of the Oleaut32.dll file. This security update creates new folders under the original Redist folder.
