    Creating applications...

    Can you write and compile VB6 applications with Visual Studio 2012? Else, what do you use? New to VB.

    Thanks

    No you can not.

    to write and compile VB6 applications you need VB6 i.e. Visual Basic 6.0 [sold as a stand alone product and/also included with Visual Studio 6.0] which was released by MS in 1998. There are still a few copies floating around but getting harder to find now.

    Visual Studio 2012 lets you write and compile VB2012 apps

    I have Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 and tried to install it. It contains VB6. But, when I try to install it, it says incompatible program. I have WIN 8. Any ideas?

    I have not tried VS6 under Win8 I did try it under Win7 and had install issues so I moved to the stand alone VB6 install which worked. Under Win8 I was able to install VB6 using the VB6 Enterprise Edition CD but it was a bit tricky to do.

    Here is a thread I started on the subject a while back

    Here is a link to a user created installer that claims to work
