Microsoft Pushes Visual Basic 6.0 Support on Windows 8 | Visual Studio Magazine Microsoft has announced that it will continue to support Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows 8. The company has been trying to phase out the language in favor of more modern alternatives like C# and Visual Basic .NET, but it looks like it is giving the language one final lease on life. The company's announcement comes as a relief to many developers who still rely on Visual Basic 6.0 for their applications. Microsoft has also said that it will provide support for the language on Windows 8, and has released a set of guidelines to help developers transition their applications to the new OS. While this is good news for those who still rely on Visual Basic 6.0, it's important to note that Microsoft is still encouraging developers to move away from the language and take advantage of the newer technologies available.
