VB6 programming should be included in Windows, just like VBScript programming is - and just like VBA programming is included in Office.
Here is the current release of the utility to install the VB6 programming IDE on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Visual Studio 6.0 Installer wizard v.5.0 http://nuke.vbcorner.net/
This release has been tested on Windows 10 v1803
"VB6 just got an important boost from Microsoft blogger Scott Hanselman. In his post, Hanselman shows how to configure a VB6 app to be hosted in the Windows 10 Store."
"That’s huge, as hosting an app in the store means that Microsoft is at least somewhat vouching for its compatibility and content."
"With these latest improvements to compatibility, I foresee at least another ten years of life for VB6."
The best will be to bring Visual Basic 6.0 to Windows as a tool. No doubt aboute that !
VB6 is she smartest programming language in existence ! Is fast as **** ! Put it on Windows !
The more I learn JAVA, C# and JavaSscript the more I love VB6....We all need VB6 on Windows, that simple...
i love vb6, with .net i was never happy with.
I would pay any reasonable price for an updated IDE ! Our company will use vb6 until 2025 and beyond.
Great to see VB6 programming continuing. And why not add VB6 to Windows? It would add value.

Vb6 is my life. Our company's products all written in VB6.

Microsoft support VB6 on the Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 operating systems:-
I use the VB6 programming, VBA programming and VBScript programming languages.
Crowd fund the $1 million+ cost to open source VB6 and Microsoft might consider it.
Open sourcing a large development environment + compiler + libraries + all of the 100s of difficult c based com APIs used by VB6 is a non-trivial operation.
Anyone care to volunteer for free at MS for 6 months to evaluate open sourcing VB6?
No. Ship a Windows 10 VM with VB6 development tools installed. Commit to maintaining that as a MS supported VB6 development environment until VB6 is retired.
