I am trying to Open a Windows Installer database file using VB6.
I have included the refrences "Windows Installer Object Library" (msi.dll)

when I run the following code

Dim objWI As WindowsInstaller.Installer
Dim objDB As WindowsInstaller.Database
Set objDB = objWI.OpenDatabase("[pathof msi]",0)

I get an error saying "Object variable or With block variable not set ".

What could be the mistake on my part???

I think you have to set the objects.

Dim objWI
Dim objDB
Dim Database

Const msiOpenDatabaseModeReadOnly = 0
Const msiOpenDatabaseModeTransact = 1

Set objWI = Createobject("WindowsInstaller.Installer")
Set objDB = Createobject("WindowsInstaller.Database")

Set Database = objWI.OpenDatabase("pathtomsi",msiOpenDatabaseModeTransact)

This at least works in my scripts.
