Visual Basic Help 6.0

I have the original MSDN that came with my Visual Basic.  I know there is a newer version that works with integrated F1 help.  What is that version?  

Anyone know where I can get it from?
I have about 50 MSDN's and maybe it will be one of those but I think I ran into this in past and it is one of versions somehow I did not get / have a subscription at the time.

thanks terry

Is there a place to get this version?  Or is it worth the trouble and should I use a newer version of MSDN?

They still have OCTober 2001?

I have a subscription to MSDN but I understand that the integration of most version except what came with it and october 2001 does not work?  Is that true or is there a work around for it?

They keep posting me Oct 2001. I've got at least four of them. I am using it for VB6 (integrated) and a later version (Oct 2003)- for dotNet. I haven't had any problems at all.

I suppose I really should get around to updating Oct 2003 though.

"They" who is they?  You mean they still send oct 2001 out to you?    Does the october 2003 dotNet still have support / docs/samples for vb 6.0?

Anyway, if you have an MSDN subscription, you can download a copy at the MSDN subscriber downloads web page.

you can?  let me try that......  Do they still have the old ones too?  
I have a subscription but will have to figure out where the online msdn is as I am not sure I have used it.

Go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions and follow the link to Subscriber downloads. You need your MSDN subscription linked to a Microsoft Passport to sign in.

They don't have all the old ones - but Oct 2001 is still current for VS 6.0
