http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2005/07/01/using-msiinv-to-gather-information-about-what-is-installed-on-a-computer.aspx )
- Searched for the component GUID {9C843E45-C138-43EE-A224-7DB2F4AE317E and '{DD68FEE8-C369-11D1-A173-00A0C90AB50F}'
- Product GUID is both the errors is the same '{1B041548-33BC-4174-8B97-ADC9B7948488}'
- Found that this GUID is for Visual Studio 2005
- Searched for this GUID on my own box opening VS2005 Setup using Orca tool
- Found that this is linked to MSADDNDR.DLL(C:\Program Files\Common Files\DESIGNER)
- Registered this DLL using regsvr32 MSADDNDR.DLL
- Now opened VB6.0 and it worked without any issues
