VB5 Learning Edition

P: n/a
I have just dug out my VB5 Deluxe Learning Edition
manuals but I find that I've lost the CD with the VB5
Learning Edition on it. Does anyone know if there is
anywhere that I can download it from? I'm currently an
unemployed programmer and I am cross-training from
another version of BASIC (PICK BASIC).

Hi Mark,

This is a VB.NET newsgroup, you may have better luck posting to a VB5/6
group:

Check out the microsoft.public.vb[.*] group(s)

Hi Mark,

While you're here, though, have you considered starting off with VB.NET ?
It has a better long-term future than VB5 though the learning curve may be
more difficult. There's sense in doing VB5 and then VB.NET later, but there's
also sense in going straight for VB.NET.

Whichever way you go, I wish you the best. :-)

Fergus

VB 6 is very different from VB 5, as is Visual Studio .NET. I would consider
learning VB.NET. You have options here:

1. Work with the framework and your favorite ASCII editor. A bit slower, but
you will learn the underlying way .NET works. And, it is free.

2. Download Framework and Web Matrix (also free) from www.asp.net and learn
web development.

3. Download Framework and SharpDevelop from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sharpdevelop/ and code any type of project.

4. Get a free trial of Visual Studio .NET from
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/pr...l/default.aspx. You can
try online or order a DVD with the product on it.

I would not spend a lot of time with an archaic version of a language, as it
is not the best option for furthering your career. If you said VB 6, I might
still give the same advice, but there are still plenty of shops supporting
and building VB 6 apps.

Hi Mark,
I don't know where you live.
And I never did something with VB5.
But were I live those things are mostly in a public library.
Maybe you can find it there.
