Getting Visual Basic
So, you want to get hold of a copy of Visual Basic?
Unfortunately, Visual Basic 6 is NOT a free program, and if you persist in asking where to download it (an illegal copy) you will most likely find yourself removed from the channel.
There is a free version of Classic Visual Basic 5 Control creation edition which allowed you to create and compile ActiveX controls but not executables. It used to be available from the Microsoft Download Centre but currently appears to be down.
