How to install Visual Basic professional 6.0 on windows 10 64 bit OS silently?

I know vb6 hangs at the end of installation on win10 even if we wait for hours. By disabling "Data Access" components, this could be avoided. But Could someone please tell me how to disable this "Data Access" components during silent install. Do we have any config/ response file? If so, how to create it? Because i can install VB6 on win 10 in UI by disabling Data Access components manually. But I need to do silent install of VB6 via batch script on win10. Please suggest.

Does this work for you?


REM Set the Installation source folder variable
SET INSTDIR=\\UNC Path to Installation folder on network
REM Run the registry patch which allows us to skip the first GUI section of the install
REGEDIT /S "%INSTDIR%\key.dat"
REM Run the VB Installer itself with the serial number
START /WAIT %INSTDIR%\setup\acmsetup.exe /T VB98Ent.stf /S "%INSTDIR%\" /n"User Name" /o "Company name" /k 1234567890
/b 1 /gc %TEMP%\vb6_install_log.txt /qtn

It is then necessary to reboot before applying the appropriate Service Pack.
