Microsoft is clearly done with VB6 (they pretty much want you to use the .NET technology), there are several VB-like frameworks out there made by those who love VB6 as much as the people who keep asking Microsoft to do this.
I wanted to update the status to make sure you know that we hear you. This isn’t straightforward to deliver for obvious reasons: Visual Studio installs a disparate variety of tools, runtimes and SDKs, many of which come from third parties or other parts of Microsoft. We recognize that developers would love to see something lighter and while we have nothing new to announce at this stage, we are spending a lot of time thinking about how we can improve Visual Studio installation.
Thanks for the feedback!

This is a great idea! We completely understand how auto-switching SCC providers would help increase your productivity. Although we plan to make this available to you in the near future, we are still in the planning process and may reach out for your feedback as we start to define how tackle this problem. We will check back as soon as possible with any updates to this request. Allison Buchholtz-Au: VS Program Manager Ed Lomonaco commented
Happy to hear this, this ia must and think VS is the only IDE not doing this.
