Hi

You can install both the programming software and use it simulataneously with no problems I have tried installing both of them in Vista Bussiness as well as Win XP Pro with no problems.

hi robintwos,
as ppdeec confirmed that it is not an issue to install VB6 along with the .Net framework (they are 2 independent entities)
I will move this topic to the Visual Basic forum where experts there will be able to guide you better, and you can recieve more help regarding the same.

Donít worry. There will not be any versioning problem. VB.Net also has VB components and refrences.

OK. Now reinstal Microsoft Visaul Basic 2003.
PS: Do you know why you have problems.
- You have because when the instalation on VB 6 have finishd the setup you aks
you do you want VB 6 to be the default programming language and you probably have presed Yes.

Dont wory. Just Instal VB 2003 again
