WinXP build to 2000 deploy issue

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/191096/EN-US/ - Multiple “System Files Are Out of Date” Errors

 

Specific attempt to avoid above issue

trouble when building installation package on XP and deploying to Win2K

 

build, with only as many required dlls as needed in project

 

open Setup.lst

 

delete the following line:
File1=@VB6STKIT.DLL,$(WinSysPathSysFile),,,7/15/00 12:00:00 AM,101888,6.0.84.50

 

Open the Support folder

 

do the same for the Setup.lst file found there (s/b identical - unknown which is used, or both)

 

open ExportFileProcessor.DDF (the <projectname>.DDF file)

 

delete the reference to "VB6STKIT.DLL"

 

That should be it, if you reduced the included DLLs at packaging time...
