 File Format No Longer Supported
I am geting a File Format No Longer Supported Error when opening an existing
project in VB 6 sp3. The application still runs correctly.
Anyone know how I can get this to stop and/or what this is referring to?

Could this be an old project from VB3 (or before) that had a Binary as well as a Text format for the VBP, FRM and BAS files? If it is you have to open it with VB3 and then do a Save As on every file selecting the Text format instead of Binary.

Lon,

It could be that you have a project with form(s) not saved as text but
binary.  That "feature" was discontinued in VB4 - before you could convert
your VB3 projects, you had to save all forms as text.
