VB6 Print Preview with Win 7

I have several applications using VB6 and Preview.ocx. When I upgraded to windows 7, this app will not work. Is there an upgrade or something else I can use?

I think this is busted.

There are a few other things broke too. I'm thinking of moving to a PDF output and implementing changes to call up Adobe or Foxit to preview this. Then again we are pondering a move to .NET and not dropping a dime on this old app.

VB6 Print

I understand .net has more problems printing than VB6.
I decided to remove the .preview and everything just went directly to the printer.
Thanks for the response.

Our .net 3.5 experiences have been "all good." I know our oldest programmer had a hard time making the jump to C# but the rest of the team is cooking along nicely.
