Visual Basic 17 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I went to the Microsoft.com site and I only downloaded what they claimed was Visual Studio 2015 but when I went to run the install it said it was Visual Basic 14.  Any possibility you can provide me the link where I can download the most up to date version of Visual Basic??  I do not want a Trial Version but the version they offer for free.  I currently have Visual Basic 2010 on my system and very interested in learning the newest version.

    Thanks Les

  • Well according to posts by Cor Ligthert VB 2015 I believe is the best you can do even if you download Visual Studio of 2017. As apparently the VB version isn't consistent with the year of Visual Studio. Or regarding the version of VB I may be wrong as memory isn't my strong suit nowadays!

    VB 15 not 2015. Only in 2010 it was the same as the package in which it was 10 and '10. 

    The confusion in is about the language version and the product (VB6 or VB'98).

  • Hi MM,

    Yes Cor is correct about that although I remember reading that somewhere but I installed the Visual Studio 2017 and do not see a mention about Visual Basic 2015! Oh and BTW the link Leshay provded me from up above brings me to 3 choices Visual Studio community which says a Free download whereas the other 2 say a free trial.  Trials expire I think in a month and the Visual Studio Community I thought was free.  When I installed VS 2017 under the REGISTER PRODUCT it mentions the License 30 day trial (for evaluation purposes only) expires April 28, 2018???  I thought this version was free as it says in Leshays link and the other 2 were for trial prupose only??  Can someone qualify this?

    Thx in advance

    Les

    Hi

    The FREE version is the one you want, The TRIAL versions are the PROFESSIONAL (chargeable) and ENTERPRISE (chargeable)
