VB6 support till 2018 ?
Wed, Feb 6 2008 14:29
As you probably know Windows Server 2008 has been released. I set up a virtual machine for the 64 bit Win 2008 with VMWare (Virtual PC doesn't support 64 bit) and was happily surprised to see I could just drag a VB6 application into the VM and it ran :)
So the good news is the Vb6 runtime ships as part of Windows 2008 and hence gets 5 year main stream support followed by 5 years extended support !! That's up to 2018 !!
Now given this extended support, why is it MS doesn't update the VB6 editor and also provide a 64 bit runtime ?
