I'm not sure what you mean by "the older version." Do you mean Visual Basic
6.0, Visual Basic .NET 2002, or Visual Basic .NET 2003? None of these products
are available free of charge. (Actually, for all of the .NET products, the
language compiler and libraries are free; only Visual Studio cost money.)
The only full free version is Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. If your
interest is .NET and not Visual Basic 6.0, you should download the free Visual
Basic 2005 Express Edition. If you want to develop Web applications, download
Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition instead. You can find all of them
at the following site.

There are lots of training resources available on the web for free, although
I think that tutorial books provide a more consistent training experience.
But as usual, I am biased. Amazon.com and other similar sites sell used books
at pretty low prices.
