    :cool:

    Only thing is in my MIS class we are using VB 6.0 I believe. It is part of a Visual Studio package they have installed there, but is it an older version?

    VB6 and VB.NET are very different. You can't use .NET to write/compile for VB6.

    Hmm, my prof. said I could pick it up for $100. I don't see any other versions around that price.

    Ok, cancelled my order. Guess they use Visual Studio 6.0 @ school. Don't see it listed on the site I can get discounted software from though.

    If your school has a bookstore, check there. At the uni here they sell academic versions in the bookstore at discounted price.

    If you plan on using .NET, you might as well go ahead and buy it. $100 is a great deal.

    Our school bookstore doesn't sell software directly. They go through journeyed.com. Good prices, but they don't carry Visual Studio 6.0.
