I have an old VB 6.0 file that I need to open. I can't open it with VB.NET, so I was wondering if there was anywhere to get a trial version of 6.0

Have a look at Microsoft's Resource Center

You can always upgrade VB6 projects to later versions of Visual Studio using the upgrade wizard.

Visual Basic 6 itself has been discontinued long ago, so unless you can find a second hand CD to install it from, you're out of luck.

Just about the only way to get VB6 these days is with an MSDN subscription. – Richard Jan 10 '11 at 9:38

You may be able to open it with Visual Basic for Applications.

To the best of my knowledge, no. – Zian Choy Apr 10 '11 at 0:49
