Visual Basic 6.0 MSDN help Files

I recently had to reinstall visual basic 6.0. I also reinstalled
the msdn files that came with vb6.

When I need to search for an item in help, I type the keyword
into the text box on the index tab. If I double click any of the
possible results that are returned, a dialog box is displayed
with the message Please Insert the cd-rom disc labeled
"MSDN VS 6.0 CD2" into drive E.

Previously, I did not have to have the msdn cd in the drive
to access the vb help system.
How can I get the help files on to my system??

Thanks,
DW

I had a similar experience. When I ran the installer, I realized that there
is a custom install that allow you to pick the components to install. I
picked all the VB stuff but didn't pick the Visual C.

Try re-installing, custom, and pick all the components you need (providing
you have sufficient disk space).

Re-install the MSDN Library, but this time do a FULL install, that will put
all the files on your hard drive so you don't need to insert the CD, can
take up to about 80Meg of hard drive space though.

What version of MSDN do you have? I have October 2000 edition, and it
takes 1.3GB for a full install.

hey all,
Im a hobbiest programer, i was given Visual Studio 98 for christmas and
everything was great, I was recently robbed and along with my comp, all my
software was taken, I have emergency coppies of some programs (VB 6.0 and
VC++ 6.0) but the rest are missing, I need my MSDN library but when I
contacted microsoft they told me I'd have to buy all new MSDN CDs, which I
cannot afford, I was wondering if anybody would be willing to send me a copy
of the MSDN disc(s)? thak you.
