  1. Re: Change the source code of the .Net4.8 framework from C# to VB.NET

    the two languages, at the beginning, were basically identical, in that they all had equivalent functions, methods, variables to each other. This is why the online converters were able to swap back...

    that's impractical in some cases. We build for windows server but don't have any local machines running it. You really just need to make sure that MSBuild can compile your program on the other...

    VS 2017 Re: Problem porting JS function to VB.NET

    Re: what happened to RobDog888

    in general, but the implementation has diverged in the two languages. You can make most code translate but some stuff you simply can't. C# has more features now.

    You're going to be creeped out by vs2022. The code completion is so good that it many times will know in advance the entire line of code you are about to type and will suggest it.

    it may be "easy" but it's not stable. vb6 container is single-threaded. as a side note, i misread the title. I thought it was a 3950x. A 3990 x is a threadripper and that's a server processor.
