From what I remember VB 5 projects can be run in VB6 without much of an issue. It was only when you go to .NET that things change dramatically. Now you might possibly run into a few changes in syntax or the occasional bug, but most of it (if not all) should run just fine.

I believe they're VB.Net extensions, so you can't use them in VB6.

VB6 backward compatibility with VB5 and VB4 was pretty much seamless. Any bugs that came up were typically minor and limited to non-native controls and such.
