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.
