We just download Visual Basic 2010 Express and installed it.
We currently have applications developed and working in Visual Basic 6 SP6 and the databases used with VB6 are MsSQL 2000 and 2005.
We mostly developed and maintain financial applications such as invoicing, purchases, inventory, budgeting, etc. We are not developing in web, media, mobile, graphics, animations, scientific, etc. and we are not planning to get into those area anytime soon.
We have viewed a lot of docs referring to the differences in both free and paid versions and have been bombarded with a lot information, so we need help.
With all this information provided, we would like the experienced EE's unique input and recommendations on:
- If we jump directly to start working with the free version, would we be loosing out on
not purchasing the full package based on what we need?
(as we said, we more directed to financial and office apps)
If any EE with both VB6 and VB2005/2010 experience can recommend based on thier experience, that would be great.
