Yes-ish, probably maybe - see http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/questions-help-needed/1854-com-controls.html#post10125 Ideally you need VS with which it is dead easy on the desktop as it builds the Interop Assembly for you which you can also do at the command line with the tlbimp.exe utility. Then you need to write a Basic4ppc library in C# or VB.NET that uses the Interop Assembly to expose the bits you want to Basic4ppc.Can we use an ActiveX dll, compiled with VB6?
Too old I'm afraid. You need VS2005 or VS2008 to be able to do .NET development.I do have VS6
Probably as you need to write the wrapper library in .NET anyway. The free Express versions of VS200x will do desktop libraries (I think) but you need VS2005 Standard or VS2008 Professional (ouch!) to do device libraries. SharpDevelop is free and can do devices as well but I believe it is a bit more finicky to use than VS but I don't know as I have never tried it. I use VS2005 Standard myself.in any case it might be easier then to re-write the ActiveX dll in .net.
Ah, yes, of course.Too old I'm afraid. You need VS2005 or VS2008 to be able to do .NET development.
All I have heard is that this is a fruitless task and that is better to re-write from scratch.According to Microsoft the "Visual Basic 2008 Express includes a migration wizard that will help import existing Visual Basic 6.0 projects.
