Pros and cons of vb.net over vb6 application

I have to give a presentation on pros and cons of .NET to our clients, who
are already using our VB6/SQL Server 2000 application....(Yes, we are too
late)...Many of you must have done the same exercise earlier. I am looking
for issues like (1) how dotnet simplifies client side deployment of an
application (2) Will dotnet application's performace will be betterthan vb6?
(3) few features of dotnet which is impossible in vb6

Thanks for any input.

Hi Precious,

Did I did send this morning to Punya in this newsgroup (so you can also look
what Mack was writting)

In addition to Mack,
If you only use managed code, you do not get anymore conflicts with com
objects which not are loaded or has the wrong version. You also do not have
to registrate them. And therefore deployment is much easier.

The toolkit from VB.net is much larger than VB6 (C#6 did not exist) and as
sample doing the registry goes now in a more common way. (But that is with
most operations)

What Mack what saying about a smaller runtimer from VB6 is only temporary.
In the standard update from Microsoft on operatings systems which can use it
is the Net1.1 included, while it is a standard coponent already from Server
2003. So in future it is an advantage upon VB6 with this also.

Between the languages which uses managed code is not much difference, either
in performance and also not in writing, knowing the framework is more
important, those languages are only the cement to build it.

The copyright date for VB6 (SP5) is 1987-2000 - four years old!
