Sappy (Working Version)



Sappy often displays an error that it can’t locate a file called “VbalCboEX6.ocx”. This tutorial explains how to rectify this error.

The problem

See above.

The solution

I give full credit to gogojjtech of the PokeCommunity forums for this solution, and might even link you to his tutorial because it’s amazingly extensive.

(edit: as of 30/4/2017 most of the youtube links and images in the tutorial are broken so it is almost worthless. for archival purposes I am keeping most of this post intact.)

Download Sappy installer
Download Sappy 2006 mod 15

To get Sappy to work, run the installer first. After using the installer, replace the sappy.exe that it gives you with the one from the 2006 mod 15 zip, and then Sappy will work.

If you have no idea what anything in this program means, read this.

Man I remember I had that problem too.
I solved it by downloading a French sappy that I’m still using nowadays.
Cool tut, Sappy is the best music inserter out there and everybody should use it.


Even though I redownloaded everything, from the Sappy installer and the “hacked” sappy, I attempted to put them together, and still experience trouble.

Though, something like this happened while I was installing Sappy.


I wonder if it’s a problem with your permissions? do you have admin level access?


yep. I have admin access


Wait, nevermind. Finally got it to work!


What did you do to fix it?


Forgot to reinstall it


whenever i load a gba file into sappy it crashes, how do i fix it?
