Windows 7 with Visual Basic 6
by SamCec - 5/21/09 5:02 AM
On my system I am using the following: Windows XP Professional SP3, Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, and Crystal Reports XI Developers Edition. I also have quite a bit of other software.
In previous reports I remember reading that VB6 will work with Windows 7 if "AERO" is NOT turned on. By the way, I never went to Vista and I DO NOT know the purpose or use of "AERO".
Now that Windows 7 has "Windows XP Mode", is that statement still true? I do some development and maintenance of PC applications in VB6 and do not want to give it up.
Can someone please advise. I would like to go with Windows 7. I have heard nothing but good reports. If VB6 or other related products are going to give me a problem, I just can't do it.
