    Visual Basic 6

    Howdy

    I am quite a proficient Visual Basic 6 programmer, and I often write custom software for members of staff within school, however, due to us not having a copy of Visual Basic, I have to use VBA within excel usually, and recently this has prompted me with many limitations.

    I've looked around and I cant seem to find anywhere to purchase VB6, preferably the Professional edition.

    Anyone know of anywhere?

    Thanks

    I don't think you can get VB6 anymore. You should be looking at VB.NET.

    If you don't fancy buying anything, you might want to check out the express edition (which is a free download) and see if it'll do enough for your needs.

    Ive always put off the move to .NET simply because it feels like leaning a new language all over again, which bugs me seeing as I'm quite good at VB6 as it is!

    Thanks though.

    If you know VB6 already then it shouldn't take long to pickup VB.Net. However, if I was going to go down the .Net route I'd pick C#. You should have no problems learning it. There is a Microsoft Express Edition you can download and try and an open source package called SharpDevelop which is supposed to be pretty good - http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/
