    No. Spend the extra 30 seconds a few times a year to create the directories.

    Visual Studio cannot have each and every nuanced keyboard short cut or navigation goodie desired by a lone developer.

    The Tiobe index is viable only for the top 5 languages. Visual Basic is at 2.1% while much more nich languages like Oracle's PL/SQL query language is at 1.75%.

    Microsft will support the VB6 RUNTIME and not development environment for the next few years.

    Get a VM, install XP on it and install VB6 on that. That is your development environment.
    Do not let the VM connect to the internet. Do not patch the VM or VB6. Do not use COM add-ins.

    Funny if any financial systems are still using VB6 as using an unsupported platform without any ability to release updates to the financial system is not allowed under current regulations.

    Start a kickstarter project to fund the project. Microsoft won't spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to bring VB6 development environment, on-line help, packaging, etc to a modern machine.

    Microsoft would be much better just supplying a VB6 virutal machine for development with Windows XP or Vista on it.
