Any doc_group version after 1.5.1 will not build and work anymore with
Visual Studio 6. You can use x.5.1 without problems, you can only not
upgrade to a newer TAO version when you have a problem. We have several
customers using 1.5.1 with vc6 without problems. When there are issues with
1.5.1 we can always deliver fixes as part of our commercial services as
described on www.theaceorb.nl You can download 1.5.1 from
