- yes, VB already supports Unicode.
If you're coding in Visual Basic and have ever been frustrated that (Danish) Greek, Japanese, Hindi, Korean, Russian or Chinese characters display as '?' in the user interface, then you need UniToolbox.
And, no, not many are using VB, now. However, there are still an awful lot of people writing programs that doesn't fully support Unicode - I have quite a few of them on my PC - but of course, I have no idea if they were written using Visual Basic or whatever.
