  • How can I use FaceSDK with VB6?
    Unfortunately, FaceSDK does not always run smoothly with VB6. However, most of the problems you will encounter are caused by VB6, not FaceSDK. If you receive an error while trying to compile the application, try opening file .vbp with the vb6.exe program (instead of opening VB6 first and then trying to open the project). Please also try to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package
