Because .Net is the latest version, stores tend to only stock that.  Amazon.co.uk still has them listed but are out of stock at the moment, other than that try E-Bay

I had clients tell me that distributors won't sell them VS 6.0 unless they had a previous license for VS 6.  Not that they didn't stock it but they WOULDN'T.  They were forced to buy .NET.  If you have a previous license, you may still be able to get Visual Studio, otherwise, you're probably going to have to use .NET.  Again, this is only what I've heard from clients.

Cheers,

sounds similar to what i've heard, VB6 support is only being continued for existing subscribers.

I already have VB6 and I have taken on a new programmer so I want to purchase another copy so that I am licensed up.

Any ideas what I have to do to get a copy ?

you might be better off talking to microsoft (or your local MS distributor) about obtaining another license, explain your situation that you already use VB6 as a standard and are just trying to comply with the licensing agreement.  They should be flexible in this situation, it's only in cases where people want to buy VB6 to use as a new tool that they would want to deny you a license.
