Easy to learn, providing lightning fast application development, worldwide supported, intuitive. It sounds like a Microsoft commercial, but it's my honest opinions about Visual Basic 6.

Underrated in performance when it comes to execution speed. If somebody tells you that speed is a con with VB6 that is not true. This is also the fastest Visual Basic version (including VB.NET).

Visual Basic 6 has never failed me. It simply is the best development tool.

My programming experience: Fortran -> Basic -> QuickBasic -> Assembly Language linked to QuickBasic -> finally Visual Basic 6. I've written thousands of pages of code for VB6. To the reviewer who wrote that Visual Basic is for "toy applications", I hope he's grown-up since 2000. Apparently he doesn't understand the power of this program. The complexity that VB6 allows is limited only by a programmer's intelligence and imagination.

I am very disappointed in the direction that Microsoft took by dropping VB6 and going in the direction of VB.Net. There is room in the world for both VB6 and Net. I sense that the intellectual incest of certain system oriented "C" purests went into making that decision. Unfortunately, everthing in life eventually becomes political, especially company politics, and great ideas can become trivialized. I may one day learn "Net", but I can't scrap my existing code. I need VB6 and Net to work together.

I've survived using VB Learning Edition for years, which is amazing. I found VB Professional Edition on this site before it goes into extinction, simply because I need one control, "Internet Transfer Control" - otherwise Learning Edition has satisfied all my needs writing very complex programs.

I ordered Microsoft Visual Basic Professional 6.0 with Plus Pack,as advertized. I received VB 4.0, so be very careful when dealing on here. I am finished with this venue to purchase items that are integral to my work. Every piece of advertisement stated VB6.0...... but the seller (msblissbooklist)
was dishonest. USE CARE when dealing with this seller. She has refused to answer 5 e-mails.

This is a great tool! I have use it with numberous MS office apps, created games, software from Db and Dna 2k utilization. Going from Quick Basic to VB3 to VB5. VB6 has the better libray and the ultilization of COM+ and DirectX the horizon is virtually endless.

I just started programming this year in high school. I started with Q-Basic and have since moved onto Visual Basic 6.0. WOW! The program is awesome and fun to use. I have been saving up money to buy it and just recently purchased it to use at home. I would tell anyone interested in buying it to go for it. It is well worth the price.

This Product works perfectly but doesnt produce executable files for Mac or Linux. If you ever need cross platform executables, save your money and time and start with Real Basic. Real Basic has a convertor for VB6 to Real Basic but it doesnt work well. I had to rewrite my program, but Real Basic can produce executables for Windows, Mac and Linux simultaneously. If you know Visual Basic, it isnt difficult to write for Real Basic. Real Basic has a very helpful user group forum which answers your questions within minutes to hours. Real Basic lets you use their product for a month without paying anything for the privilege.

DLL's written in Visual Basic instead of C++ actually run faster, much faster, especially mathematically-oriented stuff! This has been backed up by tests! VB is incredible, incredible, incredible!
