Thanks to Charlie Heitzig for the tip: Microsoft has released Visual Studio 6.0 Service pack 1. As with previous Visual Studio service packs, this one is kind of a mess, but it's recommended for *anyone* using VS 6.0. There is a "core" download (15 MB) available for users of Visual Basic, Visual InterDev, Visual J++, and Visual FoxPro. A full download (42.5 MB) includes everything in the core download plus the fixes for Visual C++. Microsoft recommends that all Visual Studio 6.0 developers install Service Pack 1 before releasing their applications.
Visual Studio Enterprise customers will receive this fix on CD automatically, as will MSDN Universal and Professional customers. For more information, please visit the Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 1 site
