Interchangeable Code Library for VB6.0 and VB .Net
Posted on 2006-11-20
I have an application that is currently written in VB 6. It is due for a groud up re-write but at the moment I am having to add functionality still in 6. I have other applications that work in conjunction with it and I want to create a shared code library. This would be OK if the other applications were developed using 6 but I am having to use .Net. Is it possible to create a shared .Net library that I can use with 6, or failing that, can I access the classes and objects compiled within the VB 6 application file (EXE) in my .Net apps.. The reason I need to make this so difficult is because of an auto update routine for the main application that is done on very restricitve networks, therefore I cannot create installers for DLL's or make registry changes.
