Visual Basic 6.0 (Classic) upgrade to 7.0 should be able to compile standalone Win32, Win64 EXE and Android APK
1. First of all Visual Basic Classic should be brought back! (i.e: Visual Basic 7.0)
2. Visual Basic Classic version should compile to standalone Win32, Win64 executables and Android applications (the APIs which are available and common to both).
By compiling to Android APK I mean the language of coding should be BASIC which is JAVA in Android Studio.
There are many programs/frameworks on the internet which use Basic Language to compile Android applications.
Even Delphi (Pascal) creates Android applications.
If Microsoft makes this new Visual Basic Classic, there will be a steep rise in Visual Basic Classic programmers. Any programmer on Earth will almost guarantee success for this idea.
Also if possible in later versions it should also be able to create Mac OS, Linux applications and Windows Mobile applications.
Microsoft should encourage this idea! I don't see any other better idea than this!
If Microsoft wouldn't have wasted time on .NET frameworks and thought of idea like this then Visual Basic Classic would have become the 1st choice to learn programming and also for making commercial applications.
Its time to make a good and wise decision before it is too late for Microsoft! Because .NET is not having a good future and many who migrated are opting out.

Upgrade VB6 programming https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/idea/353127/upgrade-vb6.html
VB6 programming updated for 64 bit and Android would be a market leader.
Visual Studio 6.0 Installer wizard v.5.0 http://nuke.vbcorner.net/
This is the latest release of the utility to install the VB6 programming IDE on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
This release has been tested on Windows 10 v1803
Microsoft could provide VB6 programming for Android as a Pcode implementation with an Android VB6 runtime.
Microsoft can and should do this.
This is the time Microsoft should bring back VB6
ARM brings back VB6 programming commented

I agree with it
Microsoft have puublished a new Support Statement for Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows 10, and Windows Server 2016 ...
Microsoft have extended support of VB6 to Windows Server 2016. VB6 is supported until at least November 2027 on Windows Server 2016, and until at least 2025 on Windows 10. Both are likely to be extended.
VB6 programming is supported on Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 and earlier versions of Windows.
VBA programming is supported on Office 2016 and earlier versions of Office.
VBScript programming is still part of Windows.
Cant be that hatrd. VBA also works in 64 bit.
That is good. I agreed
I agree with it
