Where can I get VB6?

Hello:

I'm using VB 5.0 and need to upgrade (or purchase outright) VB 6.0.
Does anyone know where I can still buy a copy?

Does anyone have a (legitimate) copy for sale?

Thanks,

Dale Derix

could you not purchase a VB.Net 2003 Std Edition Licence (Or Full Product)
and obtain a copy of VB6 Std Edition? assuming like other MS products, the
..Net licence being downgradable.

Dale,

There are always plenty of copies of VB6 for sale on eBay.

I checked into that, but they said to qualify for the downgradable
license, I must purchase a minumum of 5 microsoft products!


Yeah, MS once told me that VB6 was not part of Visual Studio

1) Use a tape recorder (not joking)

2) Ask which products - how about 5 of the same

It is also worth asking about the MS Developer's Suite

About $300 for everything - including crap you would never use

I spoke to Microsoft about this yesterday and it is not available (at
least in the state).

Bad news,

Dale,

But none that aren't "used", which makes license ownership, "interesting".

It looks like new copies of VB 6.0 are gone.

Yeah ... they probably are. Microsoft generally pulls the older versions
when they come out with the new.

Still ... eBay is a pretty good place to buy stuff. I bought the copy of
Visual Studio 97 that I have for something like $60 a few years ago - and it
came intact with licenses and all that.
