  1. Re: Software requires elevation on one computer but not normally

  3. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    The lack of control arrays in vb.net was iirc one of the major complaints at the time vb.net came out first.
    It made the migration of programs that used them heavily much more difficult.

    That's really very impressive.
    For me I think that type of coding requires a great amount of concentration and the breaking up of tasks in ways that aren't the easiest to debug and change.
