Question VS 6 question(s)...

I downloaded VS6 through Kazaa as a single EXE that is about 200MB+ in size. Does anybody know if this is the real stuff? Isn't VS6 supposed to be packaged with a few other files like DLLs and INIs for installation?

Hi,
Maybe it's a self extracting archive made with WinRar or some other compression soft. Don't download anything from Kazaa coz it has many trash virus infected bogus files and it's also a spyware. Go for edonkey..it rocks

I would like to correct myself. I used Kazaa Lite ++ 2.4.3.

You are probably right, ferrari, it could be a self-extracting file. But what puzzles me is that the file ends with an EXE extension, not RAR or ZIP. So I'm a little apprehensive. However, I've never seen a potential virus masquerading as a 200MB+ file before, so it can also be the real thing. <shrug>

I didn't want to try and install it just yet because it might interfere with the VB6 already installed on my computer, and I need VB6 for the next couple of months for working on a project I was assigned at work.

Once I've tested it (VS6), I will let you all know.

Thanks,

-----newguy

Hi,
Self extracting archives have "exe" extensions only and not rar or zip. You don't need to have Winrar or Winzip to extract files from SFX archives
Run the exe and the files will get extracted to the target folder.

If its a RAR or ZIP SFX, you should be able to open it in winzip or winrar, either by just loading it into those progs or by renaming it to zip or rar and then opening it.

200Mb in archive this is a normal size for VS6 (my WinRar archived install borrows 140Mb). But this VS6 wihout MSDN Library. You must download MSDN too (Approximately 3 CD )

Thumbs up great

Its good that you haven't opened the exe. Kazaa is full of viruses and trojans and other crap. Even if the file is genuine, it could still be infected with a virus. I'd suggest you get it from a reliable source.
