    Even better, let us have the option to select the VB6 programming language.

    It is good that the VB6 programming environment still works in Windows 10, and that VB6 is still supported by Microsoft https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/vb6/vb6-support

    Not much needs to be done. The VB6 programming language and the VB6 IDE work on Windows 10.
    The IDE is still one of the best around, and far better than the slow, bloated VS.Net IDE.
    So fix the few minor bugs in the installer etc..
    And update the look of VB6 apps and the IDE (as can be done now by simply adding a manifest to each).

    That is the minimum needed. If Microsoft wanted to be generous they could add the same few new statements they added to the VBA programming language when they upgraded from VBA6 to VBA7.

    VB6 and the VB6 IDE already run on Windows 10 (and Windows Server 2016), there is no significant costs in these requirements.

    Good to see VB6 programming climbing in the Tiobe index as C# declines.

    You don't need to use a utility to install the VB6 programming IDE. It will install without that.

    But many find it easier. The utility is here http://nuke.vbcorner.net/

    Or instructions to install it manually are here https://www.fortypoundhead.com/showcontent.asp?artid=23993

    It is still here. The VB6 programming language is still popular and supported on Windows 10.

    Microsoft could provide VB6 programming for Android as a Pcode implementation with an Android VB6 runtime.

    Now is the time for Microsoft to update VB6 programming.
