Visual Basic & Visual Studio 6.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am not a professional developer but self taught.

    The application I have been writing is in Visual Basic 6.0/Visual Studio 6.0

    I have this software running on an aging desktop running Windows XP but the desktop is starting to have hardware problems.

    I also have an ASUS laptop running Windows 7

    But there are compatibility issues between VB 6.0 and Windows 7 so the setup.exec will not take on the Windows 7 machine.

    Is there any way to work around this compatibility issue?

    Or, must I buy a used desktop and install Windows XP on it to continue work on my application.

    The ideal would be to work around the compatibility issues with Windows 7.
