If you find ANYTHING on VB1 you have found a web site that hasn't been updated for 7 years!!! The product was discontinued long ago, it can't work with ANYTHING available today (componenets, technologies, etc). You are walking down a dead-end street if you use it. It is very easy to find resources from version 4.0 and up (the current version is 6).

I'm only asking because the computer that I use has it (for free). It works well with Access 2.0 (Basic) commands. Due to the 16 bit nature of this animal, how close is it in contrast to VB 3.0 (16 Bit as well)? I know fundamental 5.0 (making calculators and simple databases), but the commands are only 75% executable in VB 1.0. Maybe VB 3.0 would suit better

Actually, version 1 does NOT talk with Access 2.0. You must have version 2.0 or greater to do that, and even then its via ODBC, which is primitive. If you must stay 16 bit I would recommend vb4 16 bit. If you just want something for free, download VB5 Custom Control edition off the internet. It's free!
