Maintenance and Support - Visual Basic 6


Visual Basic 6 is the last version of Visual Basic that compiled to native code.  From there, the Microsoft VB products have all been .NET, running in Common Language Runtime (CLR).  Our projects involving VB included an application for the US Air Force circa 1995 - 96 written in VB3, and another one in 1998 written in VB6.  One project done in 2010 involve maintaining a COM library used in a 'Classic' ASP website: the COM library acted as the 'middleware' between the ASP pages (VBScript) and SQL Server.  Various third parties have tried to preserve the Visual Basic functionality in open source versions of the language, including implementations in Linux/Unix etc.  All the VB work done here involved maintaining tables in either Oracle or SQL Server.
