I bought a book tonight called Microsoft Visual Basic: Game Programming for Teens. It's an awesome book, but I have to have Visual Basic 6.0 to use it. I download Visual Studio 2008, but it turns out it's completely different since it's .Net. I didn't realize this when I bought the book. So right now the book is useless. I was wondering if anyone had a copy of Visual Studio 6.0 I could download. I've looked and looked and can't seem to find any other way to obtain it. Please help.

Thanks,
BD

VB6.0 usually comes in a different package than Visual Studio 6... it's actually a whole different program.

There's a torrent of it here:

That should work... if not, I could upload mine eventually

Don't bother trying to find Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 legally... Even Microsoft themselves wouldn't care. As you said, it's not for sell anymore, and I'd classify it as abandonware tongue.gif

Thanks guys. This helped out a lot. Everything worked just like it was suppose to. Why exactly did they abandon VB and move to .Net?

I haven't read any official articles/whitepapers as to why, so I'll venture a semi-educated(?) guess...

.NET was designed to bring in a new language with constructs/functionality/libraries to utilize modern day computing systems (64bit hardware, multi-processor/threading support) to compete with existing modern day languages.

They took a step back and abstracted everything into a common language so it doesn't matter if you code with C#, VB.Net. In the end you end up with an executable which provides with a lot of functionality out-of-the-box... you normally wouldn't have had (or had to do through various hacks).

Outsiders, like myself, would say Microsoft did a good job at duplicating/enhancing working-concepts of the Java framework and added what they felt was needed in a modern day language.

VB6 is old, just plain old. I don't want to fathom what type of effort it would take to revamp the core VB runtimes to match the functionality they have with the .NET framework today.
