Visual Basic stopped working with Windows 7. Microsoft dropped a bunch of required modules in Windows 7. The solution was to add these modules to the VB6 build. Again with Windows 10, Microsoft did the same thing, requiring modules to be included in the build. In addition, Microsoft changed the registry structure/contents on Windows 10. I am still trying to code replacement to find the full path to installed programs.

Years ago, I was going to convert my VB6 programs to VB.net, but ran into big problems as the form handling routines did not have the same capabilities of VB6. That was probably 18 years ago, so I can't remember the details now, but I'd guess, and it is only a guess, that things like <controlname>_LostFocus no longer worked and I didn't want to waste the time on how to get around the problem. As I recall, there were a lot of deficiencies with VB.net. With changes in Windows 10 and Windows 11, I may have to re-write all my applications in a new language. I've been retired for over 10 years, so I don't think that is going to happen. Microsoft sucks!

And don't get me started on the 'unknown publisher' message that comes up every time I run an application on Windows 10. Microsoft doesn't want to make things easy for the developer anymore.
