Moving from Visual Basic 6/VB6 to VB.NET

Wednesday February 11, 2009 at 12:35pm

Many companies have invested a huge amount of time, money and resource in developing applications built in VB6.  Even though VB6 first came out around 1996, many of these applications are still being successfully used today.

Microsoft is well aware of this existing VB6 application based, but have now released a new area of the MSDN site to help developers and companies migrate from Visual Basic 6 to Microsoft.NET.

There are several options available including "do nothing" to a complete rewrite.

On Microsoft's site at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/dd408373.aspx developers can read about the options available and also win copies of migration tools that do the majority or all the reprogramming work for you.

Its quite a comprehensive resource, and for those VB6 developers who've never used Microsoft .NET, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how easy and quick it is to develop code.  Testing is easier, the end product is graphically better and overall, moving to Microsoft .NET should be the way forward - so why not visit Microsoft's VB6 Migration site and read how to do it.
