Thanks Ehytar,

Never considered another language mainly because VB talks in English therefore so much easier for an old fellow to understand

Hi Mouser,

Just been talking with Microsoft on whether VB 4 can be upgraded to Visual Studio 2008. They assured that it can however when searching for the upgrade literature I read that this was a big NO NO due to minor language changes but mainly due to .NET platform used. Do you know who is correct

Morning Mouser,

I have the code as the programme is fully functional in VB4 however as you confirmed it is becoming a dated language. I can read and make minor adjustments to VB4 but it is the ongoing functionality I worry about hence my question. In NZ the difficulty is also finding estab which offer on line training even for VS 2008 and although I have sought programmers I have had no reply to date and I thought there was a recession?

Thanks for the support and guidance. Love Screenshot Capture.

Thanks for that. It supported my personal argument but I needed someone to confirm or deny. Thmbsup

Morning, I'm in a quandry over which prog language to use. I have recently purchased a software development project which writes IRD approved return preparation software. The programme needs to updated annually to comply with new legislation. My problem is the program is written in VB4 and as such there are not a lot of developers/writers who still use that language in NZ. I am also "elderly" and  I have to learn the VB4 prog language but would I be better to burst out and learn and compile the package in VB9 ensuring program longevity.

Advice or guidance on the pros and cons would be appreciated as at the moment I tend to be going in circles and getting nowhere.
