    Check B4J. You can use it to build cross platform desktop apps. It is not VB6 however it is also a RAD tool and is used by many VB developers.

    B4X is a RAD programing language. It has many features not available in any of the mentioned languages. For example "resumable subs" feature which makes it much simpler to manage async tasks.

    You shouldn't and don't need to rely on Java being installed on the customer computer.
    The better approach is to embed a modularized JRE (Java runtime) together with your app.

    I recommend you to use a real device with B4A-Bridge or USB debug mode. The Android emulator (which is part of Android SDK) is quite slow and unreliable.
  39. Re: [RESOLVED] Advice on tools to use for andriod development

    Check B4A: www.b4x.com
    It is a RAD tool, it creates native applications. The language is similar (not identical) to VB6.
