    Classic Coexistance and F1 Help

    Hi Folks --

    We've all heard the assurances, by Ari Bixhorn as well as others, that Classic VB
    will coexist peacefully with VFred on a development machine for the foreseeable
    future, right? Well, did anyone else read the preview of the Jan2002 MSDN in this
    latest (Oct2001) release? Snipped:

    "When installing the MSDN Library, you may designate it as the preferred document
    collection for F1 Help and general documentation Help for Microsoft Visual Studio
    ..NET. (The MSDN Library contains the Help files and documentation set for all Visual
    Studio .NET products.) We strongly recommend this option so you may benefit from the
    added powerful features of the new MSDN Library."

    Notice, no mention -- whatsoever -- of Visual Studio 6. New releases of MSDN won't
    provide F1 help for VS6, so you'll have to have multiple MSDN installs if you want to
    do parallel development (with Help available).

    Question: Anyone bothered by that?

    Later... Karl

    Karl: Not at all; disk space is beyond cheap. Or, if you prefer, you can
    access the .NET and/or VB6 documentation online at
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library .

    Some times I think you guys are not living in the real world. The VB6
    help is bad enough, both slow in loading and awful to find anything
    in, but to suggest readng it over the web, well, once again I am
    gobsmacked! I would recommend those who do continue with VB6 but wish
    to experiment with <spit>VB.NET</spit> just run two computers. I have
    four at the moment, including the Linux box.

    I'm not bothered by space requirements.
    I just don't get help in .NET. I'm an absolute configuration disaster so
    maybe now I have something to look for.
