How to maintain a VB6-program today?

Inkimar 1 Reputation point


It has fallen on me to support a VB6-system that is installed on a Windows-7 machine.
Now my IT-department gave me a computer with Windows-7 installed (64bit, due to forticlient).
I am not successful when installning the VB6 on this system, i followed some guidelines online - but I seem to fall short.

How can I maintain a VB6-system.

  1. is it possible to maintain the code on a windows10-machine ?
  2. Am I able to install a VB6 IDE/SDK on a Windows7 64bitmachine ?

best, Ink

    VB6 IDE support ended in 2008. "The Visual Basic 6.0 IDE is no longer supported as of April 8, 2008."

    If that application is critical to running your business, then I would suggest that you migrate it to VB.Net.
