VB 6 on vista Powered By Docstoc
					Hi Guys,

I recently upgraded to Vista and after a few updates, my system is
running awesome. But the real pain begun when i tried installing Visual
Studio 6. I still use VB 6 for some reasons, along with VS.NET 2005. The
setup failed straightforward. After many tries and searching on MSDN
forums, i have found a way to do it.

Here you go...

Note: First thing to note is that Visual Basic 6 and Visual FoxPro 6 are
the only components of VS 6 that are supported on Vista. For Visual C++ 6
and Visual Interdev 6, Use the Visual C++ 2005 and Visual Web Developer
features of Visual Studio 2005 or 2008.

1. Right click the file setup.exe in root of Visual Basic 6 CD and choose
"Run as administrator.

2. Setup will run the java virtual machine setup and restart windows.

3. After returning, setup may not run automatically. In that case run it
again as in step 1.

4. Go through the first few pages as usual.

5. On the last setup page just before installation begins, setup it asks
for installation folder. click custom.

6. First click 'Select All'. Now uncheck
a) Visual C++ 6
b) Visual Interdev 6
c) Under Tools, Uncheck VC Error Lookup, Self installing EXE
redistributable File, OLE/COM Object Viewer, WIN32 SDK Tools, MFC Trace
Utilities. Out of these, only OLE/COM Object Viewer is important, its
incompatible with the new Visual Studio 2005 Tools. So it will give you
problem if you are installing both VS 6 and VS 2005.

7. Continue installing. Setup will complete and restart system. Congrats!


One more thing, to use vb, right click its shortcut and click properties.
On the compatibility page, check the 'Run in compatibility mode' check
box and choose Windows XP SP2. Also check the 'Run as Administrator'
checkbox. Click OK and double click the shortcut to begin.

This last step is important or you wont be able to use any Active X
components or set any references, since VB would not be able to access
the Registry.

Description: Hacking Webpages The Ultimate Guide By Virtual Circuit and Psychotic Well Psychotic wrote one of the most helpful unix text files in cyberspace but with the mail that we recieved after the release of our famous 36 page Unix Bible we realised that unix isn't for everybody so we decided that we should write on another aspect of hacking..... Virtual Circuit and Psychotic is proud to release, "Hacking Webpages With a few Other Techniques." We will discuss a few various ways of hacking webpages and getting root. We are also going to interview and question other REAL hackers on the subjects. Getting the Password File Through FTP Ok well one of the easiest ways of getting superuser access is through anonymous ftp access into a webpage. First you need learn a little about the password file... root:User:d7Bdg:1n2HG2:1127:20:Superuser TomJones:p5Y(h0tiC:1229:20:Tom Jones,:/usr/people/tomjones:/bin/csh BBob:EUyd5XAAtv2dA:1129:20:Billy Bob:/usr/people/bbob:/bin/csh This is an example of a regular encrypted password file. The Superuser is the part that gives you root. That's the main part of the file. root:x:0:1:Superuser:/: ftp:x:202:102:Anonymous ftp:/u1/ftp: ftpadmin:x:203:102:ftp Administrator:/u1/ftp This is another example of a password file, only this one has one little difference, it's shadowed. Shadowed password files don't let you view or copy the actual encrypted password. This causes problems for the password cracker and dictionary maker(both explained later in the text). Below is another example of a shadowed password file: root:x:0:1:0000-Admin(0000):/:/usr/bin/csh daemon:x:1:1:0000-Admin(0000):/: bin:x:2:2:0000-Admin(0000):/usr/bin: sys:x:3:3:0000-Admin(0000):/: adm:x:4:4:0000-Admin(0000):/var/adm: lp:x:71:8:0000-lp(0000):/usr/spool/lp: smtp:x:0:0:mail daemon user:/: uucp:x:5:5:0000-uucp(0000):/usr/lib/uucp: nuucp:x:9:9:0000-uucp(0000):/var/spool/uucppublic:/usr/lib/uucp/uucico listen:x:37:4:Network Admin:/usr/net/nls: nobody:x:60001:60001:uid no body
