VB6 license issue?

Ricky White
Ricky White used Ask the Experts™
We have a VB6 application.
Incase of a disaster, some of the developers will be working remotely using another server.
In such a case, Can we re-use our existing VB6 license on the remote server. Otherwise how can we buy a new VB6 license because Microsoft doesn't sell them anymore?
There are some VB6 licenses that are available for sale on eBay but I guess they are all used.

The only way I can think of is that you can get an assurance ( good luck ) that the license you buy is not currently in use or that you can register your copy of the license to your company/user instead.
But if Microsoft does not support the product, will they apt to assist in registering the license.  Almost a question that only Microsoft support can answer.

I'm not a lawyer but I think the way it works is that as long as you don't try to use the license in two places at the same time, you can use the same license on more than one computer.
