Hi, I am new to packaging. We are upgrading from XP to Win 7. We have many applications on VB5/VB6. Can you please let me know what are the general challenges in packaging VB applications for Win 7. Any special points to remember while creating packages for Win 7. Any help on this is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Compatibility mode is your friend for applications that don't work well. I generally found most vb applications worked well on Windows 7. I've only found 1 application so far that just won't work.
