Hello, My name is Yellowrose48. I am a beginner using Visual Basic Express. I really like this site, it's very interesting. My question is what is the difference between vb and vb6 and vb.net. Is vb express good for me to learn?

I have experience in VB6, C, C++ and python. Surely VB6 is very easy to learn, but does not give you many resources. And to make small programs you have to enter several lines of code.
Vb.net I never used :huh2:
That's my opinion

VB6 is short for VB version 6.0. There were 5 earlier versions of it that were fully compatible with VB6. VB.Net is a newer language that is a departure from these, meaning that programs written in the earlier language can't run with VB.Net.

VB6 is a bit simpler and also less powerful than VB.Net. VB Express is the free version of VB.Net. By all means go ahead and work with it, and also post questions that come up to the VB.Net forum instead of here.

Hey Bob thanks for the great reply. I feel much better about learning VB Express now. I'm new to this site and I haven't gotten familiar with things yet. Your advice was great!!! Thanks Again!!!! Yellowrose48
