Microsoft Visual Basic Deluxe Learning Edition Version 5.0

    Question

  • Will the Microsoft Visual Basic Deluxe Learning Edition Version 5.0 run on Windows XP? This (ancient) product description does not list anything newer than Win 98.
    I am hoping to relearn BASIC programming and do not wish to spend a lot on current VB versions. I have an opportunity to purchase a used set of discs for a reasonable sum.
    I'm using a 32 bit version of Win XP Home with sufficient CPU speed, RAM, and HD room.

    Thanks

  • What do you mean with spent a lot, you mean time.

    Visual Basic 2008 Express (In fact VB9 learning edition) is freeware and certainly does that run on Windows XP
