VB6 to VB2010 ??

VB6 to VB2010 ??

VB6 to VB2010 ??

I guess this has been asked many times ... if so, my apologies.

My VB6 + XP compiled stuff does not function properly under Windows 7 so I have bought VB2010. The main problems have been unpredictable graphics and fails due to missing dll files.

I haven't received the new package, so haven't tried it out. Are there any particular problems reading VB6 files into VB2010 and do the resulting compiled files run as expected with Windows 7 ?


RE: VB6 to VB2010 ??

You could try running VB6 in XP mode.

RE: VB6 to VB2010 ??

My VB6 program is quite large and complex, it uses various ocx and dll components and is highly graphical, but I have had few problems getting it working fine in Windows 7, without needing to use xp mode.
Converting from VB6 to 2010 is something different and far more challenging. There are tools that can help a bit.
