    Re: [RESOLVED] Scientific notation to string

    And just to be clear: the Decimal subtype of the Variant type does not contain "base 10" values at all.
  2. Re: I need the setup of Visual Basic 6.0 .Plz give it

    There are no new versions. VB 6.0 was the last of the product line.

    I agree somebody starting from scratch shouldn't invest time and money into VB6 at this late date, but it doesn't help to...

    Do PCs and printers even come with legacy ports anymore?

    In any case the first question was about a shared printer accessed across a LAN.

    See How To Send Raw Data to a Printer Using the Win32 API from Visual Basic.

    We get this question quite a bit here, and there should be many threads here on it already.

    Re: Call does not work

    You have created a statement label named ShortCut by putting the ":" after it. This is a local override of the symbol declared elsewhere as a subroutine in an outer scope.

    There really isn't a lot to the sorting itself. It only gets complicated when you want to take advantage of the Common Controls 6.0 "sort arrows" (triangles).

    Re: How can Build a program like UPX

    VB6's native code compile is not perfect when it comes to concealing algorithms, but it is so much better than p-code that there just isn't much motivation to create a code obfuscator.

    If I had to guess the issue is that malware scanners have become intolerant of UPX and other similar trojan obfuscators. You never see such techniques used by legitimate software.
