Method '~' of object '~'

P: 4
Hi everyone.

Can anyone help me? I'm using VB6 on windows XP sp2, and I'm trying to build outputs of my program. It works just fine using the interpreter, but when I try to build outputs it gives me the "Method '~' of object '~' failed to build" error. I've looked elsewhere on the web for solutions, but they mostly involve SQL, mts, XML etc. The only non-VB6 in feature I'm using is winsock. Thanks in advance.

I've used VB6 quite a bit, but can someone please explain to me what the expression "building outputs" means?

It's a feature which lets you compile your project into a .exe or .dll file

The error comes up while the exe is being made. I couldn't get an exe file.

Try using Inno Setup for your output..

OK. I tried reinstalling/updating vb, it threw up the same error. tried building it on a college computer - same error. Then i tried doing a 'run with full compile'. I didn't think of doing this earlier, because i thought it used the same compiler that it used to build projects. Instead of giving me the Method '~' of object '~', it found a typing error in one of my forms. Changed it and it worked fine. Wonder why the compiler couldn't give me a useful error message. I think it's because the line wasn't in the startup form. Thanks anyway. By the way, what is Inno setup?

Happy new year everyone
