Try running the HTML by clicking on the file in Windows Explorer (Not Internet Explorer). If it runs OK that way, the problem is the VB App that's calling it. If it doesn't work that way either, the problem is in the HTML File.

If it has been moved to a different computer, make sure you ran the install file, didn't just move it. If you just move it to another machine, you'll need to install the VB Runtime and any components the application uses.
