I've written a Visual Basic application and I want to make it available to Mac users. Someone told me that there is a program (apart from the whole Virtual PC thing) that will allow this.

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge on this?

Thanks,
Matt

RealBasic is, AFAIK, quite similar to VB.  But I don't think you will be able to transfer the forms and all the user interface (I would be happy to hear that I'm wrong).
I don't know much about RealBasic, but some info can be found at www.realbasic.com

Matt,

There is a utility that will convert your VB code to RealBasic code so that you can import Forms and other VB junk and compile it.  Although it won't convert perfectly (i.e. you may need to tweak the UI).  It does work pretty well.  The name of it is VB Cleaner.  It's kind of tough to find it, so I can post the URL when I get home (it's on my home machine and I'm at work).  I hope this question isn't an emergency.  =)  If you are a big VB programmer and use the Mac, you should take a look at RealBasic.

I hope this advice helps.  I'll post another comment this evening.

cdpMat,

Was there a problem with my answer?  You asked if there was a program that will allow you to import your Visual Basic code to the Mac.  I said yes and gave you the link.  Why did you give me a C?

mudface,

I think I might have annoyed the user by posting all of his open questions. I went to the site myself, and it looks like you gave an Excellent answer, so I've changed the grade to reflect that.

Thanks for your attention to this question.
