    VB6 compatability issues with Windows 7

    In trying to put VB6 on my new computer with windows 7, I got the message "Visual Studio has compatability issues with this version of windows." My company has a VB6 program that is constantly being changed that I need on my new computer. I would appreciate any suggestions or information on this. Thank you.

    I would suggest that you rewrite the program in a .net language if possible seeing as VB6 might not be supported on versions of Windows after Windows 7. Also, which version of Windows 7 are you using?

    I have the home premium edition of windows 7. Is VB6 supported by windows 7? If so, why can't I install it? Also is there anything out there to changed VB6 code to vb.net code?

    As long as you are careful to run the install "As Admin" and only install the VB6 part of VS6 you can ignore these warnings. Lots of people use VB6 on Windows 7.

    There's a note about that in the link I posted. You can set it to be disabled only when VB is launched.
