My new Vista laptop arrived at work and Marc tells me there are problems installing Visual Studio 6.0. The official word from Microsoft?
We are supporting Visual Basic 6.0, Visual FoxPro 9.0 and Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 with the Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 Update for Windows Vista. Except for the 3 products above, Microsoft does not support Visual Studio 2003 or earlier.
Mike says problems installing VS 6.0/SP5 can be avoided by instead installing VS 6.0/SP6. He also recommends uninstalling the VM
The recommendation by Microsoft is to simply upgrade to Visual Studio 2005 and SP1 with the update for Vista.
