    Will VB6 and VB .NET 2012 live peacefully on the same PC?

    I'm running Windows 7 via VMware on a MAC Book Pro. VB6 works fine but I'd like to try VB .NET concurrently. Will they not trample on each other?

    They are totally different languages, so yes you can use both at the same time.

    No directory structure conflicts?

    At one point I had VB6, VS2005, VS2008, VS2010 all on the same machine. No interference form any of them.

    It's only the users who have conflicts, not the languages.
