Wrong runtime DLL

Wrong runtime DLL

Wrong runtime DLL

I have a old application that was written in VB3.  My system crashed when trying to install "WINDOWS ME".  I was unable to continue or uninstall.  I reinstalled my old WIN98.  VB3 wouldn't run until I coppied all the .VBX and .DLL from a backup.  Now if I compile this old application in VB3 it compiles with no errors but if I try to run the .EXE, I get an error that I am running the wrong runtime .DLL.  I think it is refering to VBRUN300.DLL but it must be refering to something else as I have copied this to the \windows\system folder from several differnt sources with the same result.  HELP! HELP! I need this by monday morning and I have some third party software included that is not compatiable with VB6.
