Maintaining VB6 Apps and Developing VB .net Apps under XP SP2

P: n/a
If there is such a thing, can anyone point me to a list of known
existing or potential issues with running VB6 and VB .Net on the same
PC under XP.

Thank you.

"Should work."

If possible, install VB6 /before/ installing VB.NET.

I have some issues with VB5 and .NET on the same machine. Programs
compiled in VB5 crash randomly when pressing a button for example.
Dualbooting to 98 and compiling it there created a different exe
(different in size) with the same compiler settings and no change to the
source. This one runs fine. VB5 was installed before .NET. So everytime
I have to compile an older app I boot to 98.

I have developed a few database applications in VB6. I have recently
installed VB.Net 2003 on the same machine and both work fine. I have
released updated versions of some VB6 apps since installing VB.Net and
there have not been any report of problems.

Hope that helps
