To install this cumulative update rollup, you must have at least Windows Installer 3.1 or a later version installed on the computer. To obtain the latest version of Windows Installer for the computer, visit the following Microsoft website:

What are the Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files?

The Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files include select ActiveX control OCX files, libraries, and tools that are delivered together with the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE media and as an online release. Typically, the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE or the Microsoft.com website installs these files on the development system. Then, the developer redistributes these files together with the developer's applications.

As of April 8, 2008, support for the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE has ended. However, Microsoft still offers support for select runtime extended files that are distributed together with applications. For more information about support for the Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files, visit the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) website:

Support Statement for Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vbrun/ms788708.aspx

After I install this cumulative update rollup, do I have to install the latest security update?

This cumulative update rollup includes and supersedes all security updates. Therefore, after you install this cumulative update rollup, you do not have to install the latest security update.

Do I really need this cumulative update rollup?

Yes. This cumulative update rollup contains the previously mentioned security fixes and several other stability fixes and performance fixes for the ActiveX controls that are included in the Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Extended Files. Additionally, the ActiveX controls that are included in this cumulative update rollup will be the baseline for any future updates for these ActiveX controls. This includes security updates and hotfixes for these ActiveX controls. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you install this cumulative update rollup to have the latest supported baseline for these ActiveX controls.

I am a third-party software developer, and I use the ActiveX controls in my application. What do I have to do?

If you redistribute the ActiveX controls, make sure that you update the version of the ActiveX controls that are installed together with your application by downloading this cumulative update rollup. For more information about the best practices for using redistributed components, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

835322 Applications that bypass globally serviced side-by-side assemblies may be vulnerable to issues that are fixed by a Microsoft software update

I am developing software that contains a redistributable ActiveX control. What do I do?


Install this cumulative update rollup for your development software. If you redistributed an ActiveX control together with an application, issue an updated version of the application to your customers. In the updated version of the application, include the updated version of the file in this cumulative update rollup for your development software.
