MSDN Library

Complete newbie question here. I'm a student and have installed a student
licensed version of VB6. The MSDN library/help files are on a seperate disc
but for the life of me I cannot work out how to get it installed. It doesn't
boot up automatically like the VB6 disc and there are no obvious help files
when I explore the disc.

After you installed VB 6 and it restarted, did it give you the option to
install MSDN? If you put the 1st VB 6 CD in, it should prompt you to instal
MSDN.

I installed the first disc, which included a whole load of programs that I
didn't need(but installed them anyway), there was no prompt for the second
disc. I had a good look on the second disc for any obvious exe files but
there was nothing which would have installed the MSDN library. VB 6 works
fine but there is obviously an error message displayed when I try to use the
help facility. It's very frustrating because being new to VB, I regularly
need to check the help files but need to wait until I'm in class instead of
doing it at home.

What is the date for the MSDN Library CD's and how many of them do you have?

I'm unsure of the date right now because I've had to return the discs to the
College library. I will hopefully get hold of it again early next week.
There was 1 disc containing VB6 and a whole load of other programs and 1
disc for the MSDN library.
