I've got VB1 and VB5.

I found a program sample on the internet for VB3, and I really need to use it.  Is there anyway I can convert the program to VB1 or VB5?  Thanks,
Mark

In VB5, create a new project, and add the files from vb3 to it. If the project you found doesn't use any custom controls, or uses those which supported by vb5, it will be enough. Otherwise, there is no way to get it working.

VB5 complains because the frm files 'Are in Binary Format'... so there is no way to convert?

Ask the people who put up the samples to put them up in text format, or find a friend who still uses VB3 to open the files for you and save them as text format.
