Help with compiling VB6

Discussion in 'Programming' started by jojoyohan, Oct 23, 2005.

    I have Visual Studio.NET and I need to compile a vb6 script. I get errors when going to upgrade the code to vb.net. Is there any way to open/compile the script without upgrading it? Thanks a lot.

    Yes. With VB6. You cannot compile VB6 programs with .NET anything. You may as well ask is there anyway I can compile this pascal program with this c++ compiler without changing anything. They are two different languages.

    It is the code. I was really wondering if there was a 3rd party compiling application for vb6. I'm getting one of my frineds to compile it. Thanks for the input.

    you can compile VB6 code in visual studio.net provided that it converts everything allright. if your friend has made some non- standard code then u are stuck. i have the same situation as you :p also i dont think there is a 3rd party compiler for visual basic. It wud have been nice if visual studio supported the pld progs but no luck :(

    If you convert visual basic 6 code with Visual Studio .NET it's no longer VB6 code so really you're not compiling it at all......

    it will be a disaster for developer to maintain the code.

    in order to save time, better rewrite it. :)
