Visual Basic Runtime Libraries

The Visual Basic Runtime Libraries are required to run our software (except Mouse Trap).

Once downloaded extract into your Windows\System or WINNT\System32 directory.

Don't have a ZIP utility to extract ZIP files? Get Winzip.

Visual Basic 5 Runtime (Service Pack 3) Libraries:

Download the runtimes that are critical to running Visual Basic 5.0 applications all in one self extracting EXE file from Microsoft.

Msvbvm50.exe installs the following files, which ship with Visual Basic 5.0 Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3:

File Version
Msvbvm50.dll 05.00.8244
Oleaut32.dll 2.20.4118
Olepro32.dll 5.0.4118
Stdole2.tlb 2.20.4118
Asycfilt.dll 2.20.4118
Comcat.dll 4.71

If the file already on your system is newer than the one here DO NOT replace it when prompted by the ZIP file program. By doing so you may cripple another program already installed. Programs that need the older versions work with the newer versions as well.

Required, but either not in the exe from Microsoft or these are newer versions.
