    Resolved Vb6 Sp6 [RESOLVED]

    Is the SP6 file worth the 27MB download? I noticed that they have it available for download, and wondered if everyone else is running it? I don't know if it has anything for VB6, but it does mention some fixes for SourceSafe. Just thought that I'd ask...

    Re: Vb6 Sp6

    I have been running it at home since it came out and I have not really come
    across any issues using it. Although, i remember hearing something with using
    some controls but I cant remember. If its true Im sure someone will post it.

    It took only seconds to download on my DSL line. I take it your using Dial-Up?

    Re: Vb6 Sp6

    nah, just wondering whether or not to get it. i don't remember anyone talking about it, and most people have SP5 as their language of choice.
    I'll prolly get it, unless I hear anything negative about it.

    Re: Vb6 Sp6

    I'm doing the download now. The full version is taking all of 5 minutes, over the wireless link. It's 60MB. Getting 155KB/sec.

    Done. Going to do the install and re-boot. back later...

    WoW ! The programs run a lot quicker in the IDE. I guess it was a success!

    I remember posting this in the chit-chat forum when Microsoft released it, obviously noone goes there to read useful information :P
    I use Microsoft Visual Basic 2005. (Therefore, most code samples I provide will be based around the .NET Framework v2.0, unless otherwise specified)

    a search for SP6 produced nothing relevent, so I posted it here. I don't know when you posted on it, and don't remember reading it, or else I would have downloaded it.

    That thread was from before I knew about the site. I had only been toying around with VB back then.
