End of Support for Visual Basic and advantages of moving to .NET platform

As Microsoft announced the end of support for VB6 development, companies face the challenge of moving their current application to an updated platform. Now is the right time for businesses to plan for a VB6 to VB.NET migration than to be forced to do it out of necessity in the neck of time.

VB6 migration requires significant effort from the developers to port it to the .NET environment. VB6 has undergone significant changes with the Common Language Runtime(CLR) new programming model, taking advantage of the .NET platform features and structures. There is no fully automated tool or an error free way to upgrade from VB6 to VB.NET.

When beginning a conversion from VB6 to VB.NET, start with a plan, identify processes, gather requirements, and eventually build the architecture of the solution. Priority is given to analysis and design phases when migration from VB6 to VB.NET, as it saves time and cost associated with software development.

Some benefits of migrating VB6 to .NET environment are:

  • Increased Agility
  • Increased Scalability
  • Low Maintenance cost
