    How to install Visual studio 6 in WIndows 7 Basic?

    I have bought a new dell laptop with Windows 7 (64 bit) running. I want to install Visual Studio 6. When I tried to install visual studio 6, I get a error message on compatibility. Is it possible to install Visual studio 6 in WIndows 7 Basic?

    Sorry to say that but visual Studio 6 can't be installed on Windows 7. You have to switch to windows xp.

    If required, you can upgrade your app in VB.NET

    Before install the program, do you have check it software requirement? Usually, there are any information about compatibility for each software. If you have VS 6 and cannot be install in your Windows 7, I think that software is not compatible with the OS.

    Hi,

    Do not worry, use Visual Studio 6.0 Installer!

    With this tool you can install:

    - Visual Studio 6.0 Professional
    - Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise
    - Visual Basic 6.0 Professional
    +
    - MSDN Library (complete)
    +
    - Service Pack 6.0



    - tested on Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8
    - both 32 bits and 64 bits version
    - any Service Pack (OS)

    Video tutorial on YouTube shows installation of VS6.0 Enterprise Edition on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits - SP1:
    Serach for: BPGSXTgvFNU


    VS6 Installer:
    - it's totally free
    - doesn't require setup (simply unzip in your folder)
    - include Help file


    Of course, you need the original CD's (VS6 or VB6).

    HTH

    P.S. Sorry, URL address blocked.
