I am trying to install visual basic 6.0 so that I can enable more controls using forms in VBA. Specifically the date picker control box.

I am having trouble finding a link to download the file, as I can only seem to find links to install updates to VBA 6.0, but not to install it. Can anybody help me please?

Thanks in advance

    Hi @Rory Grossé, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    From looking at the Support Statement for Visual Basic 6.0, we can find:

    The Visual Basic team’s goal is that Visual Basic 6.0 applications continue to run on supported Windows versions.

    The Visual Basic 6.0 IDE is no longer supported as of April 8, 2008. 

    And all Visual Basic 6.0 download resources are no longer available. Thanks for your understanding! 

    Sincerely,

    Anna
