VC++ gets update, VB6 gets heave

Microsoft development honcho Soma Somasegar reports that a Visual C++ 2008 Feature pack has shipped. In January the pack came out in beta.

MFC components included in the pack allow developers to create applications with the look and feel of Microsoft Office, Visual Studio and Internet Explorer. The VC++ 2008 pack can be downloaded from Microsoft’s Download Center.

That’s the good news. The bad news is VB6 has reached end-of-life status in terms of Microsoft formal support. The company has recently created a webcast explaining what that means, and what avenues are open for application migration.
