Why not download VB.NET and use the latest and greatest of the framework?

I have to work on VB6 since it is the required programming language for my project.

Well you'll need to buy a copy off ebay or somewhere like that. VB6 is no longer supported by MS, but at the same time it is illegal to download copies of it. Unlike say VB.NET Express which is free to download from Microsoft.

There's plenty of comparison information when you research "vb6 vs vb.net"

Sounds like you might want to ask your professor how to get a copy of it, given that EBay copies cost $200 and up.
