[INFO] VB Migration Partner setup fails if VB6 isn’t installed

Current version of VB Migration Partner includes the ProjectDumperAddin.dll. This file is installed as a COM DLL in the system registry and registered as a VB6 addin during the setup process. If Microsoft Visual Basic 6 isn’t installed on the local computer, then VB Migration Partner’s setup procedure halts with the following error message:

        Module c:\Program Files\....\ProjectDumperAddin.dll failed to register. 
        HRESULT -2147467259. Contact your support personnel.

You can press Continue to ignore this error and proceed with the installation process. However, remember that, if you later install Microsoft Visual Basic 6, you must manually install the ProjectDumperAddin module by running the RegSvr32 utility:

        RegSvr32 ProjectDumperAddin.dll
