Installing VB6 and VS on the same Windows 7 Machine

This is a list of steps to take if you want to install both a Visual Basic 6 IDE and Visual Studio on a Windows 7 machine. It worked well last year with the 32-bit version of Windows 7. I credit multiple sources with links at the end of the document. Unfortunately, I was not able to make this work with the 64-bit version of Windows 7.   PDF Article Here
There are differences between VB6 Service Pack 5 and VB6 Service Pack 6 – the file editing for sp698ent.stf was not needed, from what I recall.
