  1. I am a tech school student. I am studying Visual Basic 6.0. I bought Visual Studio.NET for my home computer. I have a very expensive LARGE piece of trash taking up space on my hard drive. VB.NET may be the wave of the future, but the fact that schools are teaching Visual Basic 6.0 as the necessary foundation to whatever follows.

    I CANNOT do VB 6.0 classwork with VB.NET. The whole package is so complicated it has taken 3 three weeks of reading junk only the experts understand to find info about a thing called a start page. Anything done in VB6 at school must be “converted”, and then I cannot find anything in this conversion that looks like my classwork. If there is any way to make this program compatible someone please point me in the right direction.

    Sorry you seem to catch the flack, Guys, but your articles are the only thing I have read in the past weeks that makes sense. It seems to me you ‘ve said what I’ve been suspecting. The two programs are not compatible.
