Technical Support Note:

If you receive an error message after installation such as "A required file, MSVBVM60.DLL was not found" or "Class not registered, MSSTDFM.DLL needs to be installed on your machine" when running the barcode image generator application, install the Visual Basic 6 runtime files. Because these files already exist on most PCs, IDAutomation does not distribute them with the installation package. These runtime files may be installed by downloading and installing the VB6 Runtime Files package.
