I develop applications in VB6 and wish to move over to VB.NET,but before I install .NET on my laptop I want to make sure I can still support my clients in VB6. What are the pitfalls I need to be aware of?.

Thank you

Vincent

Amazingly VB6 and VB.NET coexist wonderfully well on the same machine.  I've been running both for quite a while and have found no issues whatsoever.

Yes.  They are counted as different products rather than upgrades by the Windows Installer, so they coexist just fine.  Many people I work with run them both.
