Good luck learning C++; I wish you all the best. It will definitely be
frustrating at first but it will be better for you in the long run. I
remember long ago when Three-D Velocity was written in Visual BASIC and I
converted it to C-Sharp (not exactly C++, but I've had my fair share of C++
nonetheless.) I had 400 and some errors to correct before the code would
even compile! In the end it makes you pay more attention to your code, since
a lot of things VB lets you do are actually illegal as far as programming
standards are concerned. Good for you for taking that leap! Converting your
code to a langauge like C++ will also expose a lot of newer technologies
like XAudio, DirectX 11, etc. VB6 can only use DirectX 8 as far as I know,
so once you port your code to C++ you will have no problem running it on
Windows 7 because the program will no longer depend on the VB 6 runtimes
which are deprecated libraries in Vista and Seven.
