Visual Basic (VB) is the third-generation event-driven programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft for its COM programming model. VB is also considered a relatively easy to learn and use programming language, because of its graphical development features and BASIC heritage.
Visual Basic was derived from BASIC and enables the rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using Data Access Objects, Remote Data Objects, or ActiveX Data Objects, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects. Scripting languages such as VBA and VBScript are syntactically similar to Visual Basic, but perform differently.
A programmer can put together an application using the components provided with Visual Basic itself. Programs written in Visual Basic can also use the Windows API, but doing so requires external function declarations.
Works with these operating systems:
* Windows XP 32-bit
* Windows Vista 64-bit (There was an issue with installing on this OS, I had to wait about 10 mins to get past the installation, but it DID complete the installation process.)
* Windows 7 64-bit (Download comes with instructions)
This is a precracked version which means that any serial number will work (something like "111-1111111" will do.
