Hello,

I know 30% of programming in VB 6.0 programming language. I wanted to know whether VB 6.0 is good for making project because I want to make project in VB 6.0 and sell it to the students. Because it is easier to make project and connection to datebase is also easy. So Please tell me Whether I should study VB 6.0 furhter to make project or I should study some latest language.

Also tell me which language I should choose to make a project .
Thank you.

What do you mean by "Sell it to the students" ? :)
The students are supposed to learn how to work by themselves, so they don't have to "buy" anything from you.
Besides this, concerning the spirit of your topic, VB6 is interesting if you want to stick to the Crosoft world.
If you want to work in the "open" world, you have to learn more standard languages, for instance you should learn how to use C or C++ compilers. Or lear how to use the standard databases (Oracle, MySQL, PosGre) and their interface with their embedded compilers or with php.
Regards
Yordan

Did we take a time warp back to 1996? Let me put this as plainly as possible. Don’t’ use Visual Basic 6 and for that matter you shouldn’t even consider using Visual Basic 6.

The hard reality is that Visual Basic 6 has been discontinued for at least 10 years. Microsoft doesn’t support it and you can’t even legally buy a compiler for VB6 anymore. If you are still dabbling with version 6 then you most likely downloaded it from a torrent (no I’m not passing judgment). The last version to support the old Visual Studio was Visual Studio 6. I have an old copy of Visual Studio 6 laying around just in case and I know that it is hard to install on such a recent operating system as Windows XP. You can forget it on Vista or Windows 7. In fact I had to install it on a virtual machine the last time I used it because Windows not only said no, but hell no.

The better choice is to use the “newer” (i.e. not obsolete) Microsoft Visual Basic .NET. This way you can learn a programming language that is actually relevant and you can use after you get out of school. VB.NET is different from the old VB6 in semantics but you should be able to pick it up fairly quickly. The best part is a compiler for all of the .NET platforms are absolutely free from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/express/.

I will improvise from Animal House in saying “Fat, drunk and programming in VB6 is no way to go through life, son”
