Visual Studio 6 Custom Toolbar


I have a legacy VB6 app that I still need to support. I also have a new PC and I would like to copy my custom toolbar that I created on my old PC. Does anybody know where Visual Studio 6 custom toolbars are persisted to?


Best Solution

I think you are talking about an addin. Addins written in VB6 for VB6 use a reference to Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Extensibility. You compile the application as an ActiveX EXE and as such it can be placed anywhere on the hard drive. You can look at vbaddin.ini for the *addin.*Connect setting where addin will be the addin name. Unfortunately this is not the file name or path, but it should be close enough to help you search the the application.
