So I decided its about time I learn VB6, but I'm having trouble installing visual studio. When I run the setup, it says "Setup has determined that the following applications(s) are running:

Microsoft Development Environment

We recommend that you close these application(s) before continuing."



Now, I've look in my task manager, and I don't see anything called Microsoft development Environment. I've also tried just installing it with this Microsoft Development Environment still running, but then I get an error saying it was not successfully installed.

Sooo, what is this Microsoft Development Environment, and how can I shut it down?

No. You were wrong. It is not time to learn VB6. Because it is not 1998.

Instead try learning VB2008 or VC#2008 or anything that's relevant today. It's free. So really:

Hmmm... I was actually planning on learning the new 2008 one, but I had several people tell me to learn vb6 instead. So... go with 2008 then?

Isn't assembly a hard language?


Edit: Just did some research, and assembly apparently isn't hard to learn...
Guess I need some new advisors when it comes to programming. Seems like the people I've been talking to have no damn clue what they're talking about...



So lets start as base1:
Hi, I'm new to programming, and I'm looking for a language that would be somewhat easy to learn, and also somewhat useful. I wanted to jump right into c++, but was told I should learn an easier language first. Any suggestions?

Oh, you twit. I dunno, what do you want to do? Java is, in some sense, easy, but it's a very poor language IMHO. You could learn Python, it's nice. C# is C-like with many friendly libraries. Uhm. True Basic, if you want to be ruined as a programmer. First language I learned, or was taught, was Basic, then Haskell in first year of Uni, then Java in second. A lot of Java. And just these past weeks I've done some Python. This doesn't include the stuff I tried to teach myself, obv. I have some links if you want.

Well I decided to go with vb2008. I've so far just been following a few tutorials, but I'm having trouble finding decent ones. I followed one and made my own email spam bomber, its pretty cool

But if you have any nice tutorials, I'd much apreciate it if you could pass me a link

Hmmm, I just read throught the first few pages of that, and even though I haven't learned anything about the code itself(I think), the story is keeping me interested

But, I think I'm going to stick with vb. Really the reason I'm learning vb is to get myself used to actual coding, so that it will be easier when I start learning c# or c++.



Edit: I'm really having a hard time finding decent tutorials. Almost every site I've been is like "set up your buttons and stuff like this, then double click that button and copy paste this code."
Its like, the whole point of me reading the tutorial is to learn what the code means and how its put together and stuff, not to place a bunch of buttons with click-drag and then copy-paste code that someone else wrote.

That might be why VB isn't really the best place to start.

I'm not really sure where you should start. I only started once and that was decades ago. And things are different now.

I do know you should steer clear of C++ and Java. Those are some of the worst places to start ever.

We started with some version of Quick Basic for DOS, supes. You don't remember fucking around with QB programs like that Gorilla thing when we were approximately 6 to 8 years old?

Wait, we were programming when we were that young? Oh god... we're such nerds! Not that I continued with the programming thing... all I do now is draw naked girls.

I remember QB. I just don't think that's a good place to start NOW.

Well I finally found a decent tutorial, and luckily its a very long tutorial that covers just about everything. So I'm goin' through it atm, and I've finally got a bunch of stuff figured out.

<a href="http://visualbasic.about.com/od/learnvbnet/a/LVBE_L1.htm">Here</a> is the tutorial I'm following if anyone's interested.

SJ, you should allow html

It's allowed but you have to code-tag it.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

How do you read things into a string from a textbox?
How do you right things into a textbox from a string?

Should be something like:
code
AwesomeString = Form1.Text1.text Form1.Text1.text = SomeOtherString


This is just a wild guess though. I haven't used VB since the last millenium.

Close but
I get that form1 cannot refer to itself in an instance [or something close to that]
so replace form1 with me
But that still leaves me with
code
Error 1 Value of type 'System.Windows.Forms.TextBox' cannot be converted to 'String'
.

You use C++ though right?
