There was a time when I was a gun programmer in upto VB6 and C++ 6. I am
wanting to get back into it after a long stay and was looking at beginning
again in .NET (C++, VB Etc.) I had a bt of a play today at making a DLL
in VB and one in C++ and they worked fine in a .NET test app. But when I
tried to use the DLL from Excel or Access 2000 they won't reference the DLL.
Error is incomaptible resource or similar.

Does this mean that there is no backward compatibilty between .NET and previous
apps. Or am I missing a page.

I hope there is something wrong with what I am doing cos I just ordered .NET
programme

Someone please explain in very simple terms the pro's and con's of .NET

Kind Regards

Colin
