Vb6tmpl.tlb is a type of TLB file that is associated with MSDN Disc 0722, a software library developed by Microsoft. TLB files are binary files that contain information about the interfaces of COM (Component Object Model) objects, such as methods, properties, and events. They are used by applications that need to communicate with COM objects, such as Visual Basic 6.
However, sometimes Vb6tmpl.tlb files can cause problems on Windows 10, such as errors, crashes, or missing files. Some of the common causes of these problems are:
Malware infection or corruption of Vb6tmpl.tlb
Accidental deletion or modification of Vb6tmpl.tlb by other software
Conflict with other TLB files or applications
Incomplete installation or download of MSDN Disc 0722 or related software
