Hi,

I think vb 2005 would be the way to go. You cant beat the price
for the express edition.

In effect. You can download CDR images from

should i format and the free download become chargeable


No. It will not require payment in the future (they say).

Hi Ken,

Unless it decides to delete half of your code anyway!

Hi,

Before you upgrade the code you should run the vb6 code advisor. It
helps make the upgrade easier.

Hi Coach,

If you checked out this page
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/ex...pport/install/ , you don't
really need to burn it onto a CD to be able to install it. It says there
that you can download the ".img" files and then use an extractor "that
enables you to mount disc image files in a virtual drive as if they were
physical discs in a physical drive."

If you still need to burn it to a CD, I guess that an ".iso" file is
slightly more conventional, although Nero will burn an ".img" file too.

Regards,

Cerebrus.

Hi Ken,

Sorry I'm referring to a rather annoying bug I keep experiencing with
2005. If I remove certain components and drag them back onto the form quite
a large ammount of code disappears from within some regions of my code, not
all is destroyed. Strange thing is the components have nothing to do with
the code.

Hi Nick,

You can report the bug/problem in the MSDN Product Feedback Center:
http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/ProductFeedback/

And if you can provide steps to reproduce it, much better. Likely it could
be fixed for VS 2005 SP1.

Hi Coach,

If your machine hardware can run VS 2005 comfortably, yes, coming from VB6
you will feel better with that version than with VS.NET 2003, Microsoft
changed some things to appeal to VB6 developers.

How about sever express - can this be downloaded as a single image?

does vb express contain this? or does it have to be installed seperately to
use it?

also
are these fully functional?

In work we have win 2000, with dot net framework, will express run on this?
not sure about what level of the framework is installed.

Also will it run with sql server?

probably a bit mixed up with my terms, but new to all this

cheers
