VB 6.0 and Visual Basic 2005- Need Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can someone help me?  I dowloaded Microsoft Visual Basic 2005.  And i was looking at http://www.vbtutor.net  and the menu to make a new file is different and you can make like ActiveX controls and other things to run programs that arent in this Visual Basic 2005 i got.  There are some other different stuff too. Is what i downloaded the latest Visual Basic 6.0?  Or do you have to buy it or u download it somewhere else.

  • The screenshots are for VB6, even though they recommend you to use VB.NET.  You need another, better tutorial.  Try googling for "vb.net tutorial"...

  • Ok but can you download VB6? Like at msdn.microsoft or microsoft.com?  Or do you have to buy VB6. If so, How Much?

  • VB6 is unavailable through MS...You may be able to find it through Ebay or something though...I would suggest downloading VBexpress for free:

     

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vb/

    and then checking out these samples:

  • This Visual Basic 2005 Express is Visual Basic 8.0. The express part is because it's a Lite freeware version.

  • VB6 is 8/9 years old and 3 generations of the product back from the current version.

    Download VB Express from microsoft site and learn using this.

    Lots of learning resources

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/learning/introtopics/default.aspx

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vb/easytolearn/

    These contain free ebooks, webcasts with video showing how to do things and much of the current documentation of the VB product relates to the .NET versions - there are considerable differences between VB6 and VB.NET

    These forums are for VB.NET products - so once your using the VB Express product - you can also ask questions here and we will try and help you.

  • Visual Basic 6.0: A giant more powerful than ever

    Well, after 15 years it has the same power as it had in the beginning :)

    You can download this portable version of Visual Basic 6.0 from here:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2S8bTpQvQ1fb2VTZUx1Tk1EanM/edit?usp=sharing

    or the normal Visual Studio 6.0 CD image (contains Visual Basic 6.0):
