I installed the Visual Studio 2008 version of Visual Basic on my new Windows 7 machine.  I would now like to add Visual Basic 6.0.   Can this be done without first uninstalling Visual Studio 2008?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not sure if VB 6.0 can be installed on Windows 7, but I have successfully installed both versions on a XP machine (a virtual one) for testing purposes, and both of them seemed to work without problems, however, I would not recommend to do that as something could malfunction in the future due to conflicts with shared libraries or something like that.

One option could be to install VB 6.0 on a VM.

    I have VB6 installed on Windows 7 x64 and it works fine, if a little slow at times.

    I guess that I should have added that I had VB6 and VS2008 installed on a Vista x32 machine with no problems.
