    When trying to use an old program written in VB5, you get this error:

    The data binding DLL, ‘VB5DB.DLL’, could not be loaded.

    To fix this, download and install Service Pack 6 for Visual Basic 6.0: Run-Time Redistribution Pack (vbrun60sp6.exe), then I copied VB5DB.DLL to the C:\Windows\System32\ and C:\Windows\sysWOW64\ directories. The install of VB6 SP6 Runtime can be downloaded from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24417. I guess the VB5DB.DLL file can be found on the VB6 installation computer somewhere (mine came from a network copy I had knocking around).
