At least one reason why we maintain (and indeed continue to develop with VB6 is the overhead in dealing with and distributing .net frameworks, and COM interop assemblies. We have a large C++ application with 80 or so COM dlls, and writing VB6 apps to use those means adding a small exe to the application installer. Adding a .NET app is a big change, and not one we can justify easily.

Again we ask: what was the sample size (how many surveyed?)


A survey that does not share the underlying sample size is not very helpful.

Please share the sample size.
