    Hi.
    I've been using VB5 EnterPr. Ver. for more than 2 years. Now I've been offered, can you pass it , VB6 Enterpr. Ver. too.

    As far as I know, there isn't much diff. between them. Any comments??

    Also, any recommendations/tips in what to keep in mind when it comes to all the projects I have made with VB5 after upgrading???

    Thanx all.

    I had VB5 for a while, and the transition to VB6 for me was pretty smooth. There aren't too many differences, but the few there are help a lot. As far as I know, all the programs written in VB5 transfer to VB6 (backwards compatability is SOOO cool)

    There isn't much difference between the two, just some additional built in functions and other things of the such.

    If you got it free...cool, if you have to pay for it wait for ver 7.

    We haven't discovered any problems with moving to version 6, and can even move ver 6 apps back to ver 5, just remove the Retained etc lines from the vbp file

    the autocomplete and autosyntax features are very very very cool, and stop you having to search through help files all the time, also the MSDN CD is the 3rd best thing in the known universe.

    Your programs that you made in VB5 should work in VB6. If they don't however, open the project file up in notepad, then look for the command 'Retained=0' if it is there then remove it, if it is not there, add it.
