    VB6 Still supported

    I've just been to an MS DevDays in Adelaide, Australia and there was a
    comment by an MS-type person that VB6 will still be supported post.NET ...

    I was not able to ask any more about this (I may tomorrow) but can anyone
    comment on this?

    Having typed the above in, I wonder if he meant it will be supported like
    NT4 is still supported -- security patches and perhaps one or two service
    packs...

    Regards,
    Mark Hurd, B.Sc.(Ma.)(Hons.)

    PS I saw VB.NET Beta 1(?) demo successfully handle a web service Function
    (rather than a Sub) as discussed in other threads!

    MS have announced (somehwhere on this ng) that VS6 will continue to receive
    SP support.

    Yes, and of course there will also be PSS and such, as well.
