1) I tried using CrossOver 3.0 professional, it's the only one that 
installed the program successfully, however when I tried loading it, it 
displayed an error message telling me that dao.ll (if I remember good) 
was missing, after installing MDAC_TYP.exe and copying the dll to the 
windows/system file, the program just crashed when booting

2) I tried with wine, both of them use fake_windows drive. First one was 
configured with Sidenet, the installation failed. Same thing happened 
with WineTools:

I've googled a lot and haven't found much info about Visual Basic 6, I 
know it's a bit old but I really want to have it running in my Linux ;)
