Hi Jim,

Don't even bother with VB6. I had been using it for about 10 years and transitioning to VB.NET seemed impossible. It was my impression that they had made the VB.NET coding style more complex to dissuade lazy programmers (like me) from using the new too set. Luckily, it turns out VB.NET is way much more powerful and in some cases, even easier!. After a massive headache involving major neuron implosion, I have been able to successfully move into VB.NET. And I can tell you they are not even compatible. So save yourself some time and just go directly to 2010. You will not regret it.

Best regards,

Need some advice.......

I want to aquire a copy of VB6.  After looking on E-Bay I found several versions. VB6.0  VB6.6, VB6 Professional and VB 2010.  The book I am using simply says VB6 with no further explaination.

Question:  is which version is the best buy for the hobby user such as myself.  Is VB6.XXX compatable with VB 2010? etc.

I would appreicate any thoughts......
