    I programmed in various BASICs on Z80 systems in the 1980s
    I programmed in QB4.5, VBDOS for years
    I programmed in VB6 and tried switching to .NET 19 years ago or so and failed as I hated the...

    Re: Some thoughts on VB6 forum

    The .NET/VB6 argument should NEVER be argued on any thread in the VB6 forum unless .NET is the only solution. Niya might argue that is always the case but that is obviously just utter bollox and no...
  3. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    I think on all my future threads I will ask Niya and Olaf specifically not to comment. It is just too stressful for the rest of us that have to watch the ensuing battle. Take it elsewhere.

  4. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Look, when someone asks a specific question, the subject of which is quite clear in the OP it should not become a battlefield between competing uses of technology that have almost nothing to do with...
  5. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Well, this is DEFINITELY not a web app so these additions are as off-topic as the Mercedes 190 timing chain drive.

    So, here's a picture:

  6. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Good car, chain timing I believe. No rubbish belts there. I was fond of the 190, compact and reliable.
  7. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Agreed, completely. VB is extremely stable isn't it?
  8. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Precisely! That is why I think that remaining with a flatfile DB (Bag o'crap) for the present may be a good idea as it will work almost anywhere as long as TB's RB's VB6 i/o functions are replicated....

    Chaps, I did say in the first post my starting point:

  11. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Thanks Olaf, I appreciate the response. It is certainly the most technically direct and I am being pushed to RC5/6 for a number of reasons. I feel that is my ultimate destination - I have no doubt I...
  12. Re: VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    I'm so sorry Niya.

    Your answer is not one that was worth all that writing, although I appreciate the effort that you made to do so. I really mean that. The effort 100%.

    However my application...
  13. Re: VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    My flatfile database, I suppose, is just crap in a bag. I think we have a name for my database.
  14. Re: VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Well, that is a very useful response and that does not jar against my sensibilities. At the time in the 90s, it was unclear as to which database I should use, if any. I am fairly sure that at that...
  15. [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    OK, it is a very broad question and I know that.

    I have an older VB6 application concerning the weapons, vehicles used in Normandy 1944. It was where I cut my teeth in VB6 and was converted from...

    Find that CD! It is worth doing. It is your code, GITHUB exists as a place for this sort of storage.
  22. Re: If I wanted to have a Windows PC that only ran VB6 programs...

    We could use NeumoPlayer as the VB6 Media player replacement.

    It is rather 'modern' looking too which suits current tastes.

  30. Re: If I wanted to have a Windows PC that only ran VB6 programs...

    Sounds a great program but... in this case the limitation is artificial and policed by me alone, in that I am only going to load VB6 programs on the machine.

    The idea is to find a variety of VB6...

    No, not looking for that, just looking for good recommendations of VB6 equivalents to everyday programs, like the ones listed above in the OP. Thankyou anyway.
