Can I Run Programs Made In Visual Basic 6.0 On Linux With Wine?

The subject pretty much says it all, I've made a couple of programs using visual basic 6, but I haven't seen anything about it compatible with Linux, can I run the programs using Wine?

Yes. Wine can't yet run the VB6 IDE, but it can run
many VB6 apps. Where it has trouble especially is
with apps that use lots of COM, e.g. that use lots
of third-party activeX controls.
Please post on the wine-users mailing list at if you have questions or problems.

Thanks, that helps, I've used 1 active x control so hopefully it'll be ok.
