I developent very simple app in Visual Basic 6.0 in Windows XP 32-bit. It was working in Widows 8.0 64-bit too, I needed only add COMDLG32.OCX to %windir% - now I have installed Windows 8.1 64-bit and added COMDLG32.OCX to %windir% and app works not, reports only error message "Component COMDLG32.OCX or one of its dependencies is missing or corrupted"...

What it means? Really I know that XP was 32-bit and Win8.1 is 64-bit but Win8.0 was also 64-bit and there was working. To be sure I copied COMDLG32.OCX from WinXP %windir% on other computer and works not. Also, Win8.1 was rebooted, problem remains...

Thank you for every help.
