vb vs .NET

can anybody tell me VB and VB.Net which one is run faster when we make in .EXE file, and why ???
1 Solution
The speed difference is not very visible as both are Exes. In Vb.Net the IL file is compiled and run on the fly by JIT compiler as compared to pre-compilation in VB. Theritically, VB will be faster than VB.Net, but how fast is anybody's guess. My guess would be that the diffrenece will be so low in micro seconds that it will not be worth considering.

Here are a few links that will help you understand other differences which are more important:
Just an FYI.. I'm running VB6 and VB.net 2003 on a 933 Pentium III with 512 Meg of RAM.  Applications compiled in VB6 run considerably better on this machine.  On higher end machines you probably won't notice that much of a difference as Sethi stated.  The reason why it runs slower at least on this machine is the compiler, also as Sethi stated.
