    I installed vs2015 and the vb6 classic add on, which can import vb6 code, but...

    I would like to know the process of linking that code for vb6 forms into a VS2015 app.

    It seems I have no toolbox with controls and no form to work with after doing that.

    All the code inside the forms loads, but no forms with controls load.

    Are you supposed to start a new project create all the forms and controls and then import the vb6 code?
    Or what?

    I put up a pic of my vb6 code loaded into VS2015
    and some photos links with better resolution

    I'm inclined to merge this thread with your other thread, despite the differences. The answers will end up being the same.

    The page for that extension says that it is not feature-complete and that it was last updated in 2020. I doubt that it is, in its current state, intended for working on forms and is more for libraries that .NET applications can then reference. Maybe they intended to create a visual designer but that would be a lot of work and it seems unlikely to happen now. If you want to use it, I would suggest that you create your UI in VB.NET and then import VB6 code to do the grunt work underneath.
