How to use the
You can download either vbSkinner ActiveX programs by downloading only
the OCX file or with the setup program.
If you download just the OCX file you will have to manually add the reference to
the file in the Windows registry. For doing that open a new project, select
"Components" from "Project" menu and then press the
command "Browse", then find the place where the file vbskpro2.ocx
or vbskfr2.ocx is.
Once it is done you will be able to select the component that is displayed
as :) vbSkinner Pro (VB6) or :) vbSkinner Free (VB6) in the ActiveX components list.
To use vbSkinner in a simple way just add a vbSkinner
control to every from of the project. For more information about the use press
F1 when the control is selected or read the online

to download in this page, it has the following features:
It is multilingual: automatically switches between the
languages English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Portuguese looking in the international
settings of the computer where the installation process is taking place.
It has skin, so you can make the setup program of your
project with a similar look of the application itself, if you had used the
vbSkinner control with it.
If you want to see an image of this program click the following
you can see it in the actual size or reduced.
For making setup programs in this way you must do the following:
Go to the folder where Visual Basic 6.0 is installed, and find the folder where
the setup wizard is.
For example, it could be:
C:\Program files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard
There you will find a file setup1.exe, rename it to something
Then uncompress the file skstp.zip that you have
downloaded from here.
Copy setup1.exe in the setup wizard directory.
Every time you will make a package with the Visual Basic 6.0
setup wizard it will be made with the new setup program.
If later you want to go back and wish to use the default VB6 setup program, then
delete or rename setup1.exe and name to setup1.exe the default VB6 file.
