Visual Basic 6.0 is no longer supported by Microsoft so how do you get a hold of it? Currently there is not an easy legal way to get a hold of VB6. Yes that's correct - although people will tell you to simply download a bit-torrents for VB6, this is not legal because you did not buy a VB6 license. Stupid I agree considering that Microsoft does not allow you to purchase a license.
If you simply need to install an application that was originally written in VB6 you can download the Runtime Installer for VB, install it, and then install your VB program. If you want to get a hold of the VB6 developer environment I suggest asking friends that might have it and no longer use it - for example companies that maybe bought legitimate copies and are willing to give up their license (although you would need to verify this is legal and that the license is transferable). Another option is to try and buy it on EBAY.
The "Hello World" program is always the first program you should write in any language, as it will show you very basic use of the language.

Most likely you are on a 64bit system. What you could do is download virtualbox which is free. With virtualbox you could install and run another operating system on it. you could run windows xp on your vista with virtualbox. then install vb6 on it.
One of the first and best things to do is begin to
understand the Visual Basic IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
By understanding the IDE you will be able to develop VB programs
quickly and effectively. Start by reading the Getting to know the VB6 IDE tutorial
classic first program in any language is the Hello World tutorial. As a
beginner you should make sure you write this program to get your feet
wet. Check out the Simple Hello World VB6 tutorial
programmers figure out how to use a consistent naming scheme when they
develop applications. The quickest way to graduate out of the beginner
VB6 level is to check out the Object Types and Naming Scheme VB tutorial
Variables are used in any real development. Make sure you visit the Quick Variable tutorial to see how variables work in Visual Basic 6
you need to make comparisons or have your program choose between
options you will need to understand Visual Basic's if statements.
Luckily there's a beginners tutorial that explains just that: Understanding the if conditional statement
a beginner understands how to use functions and subroutines he or she
is on the road to being a full fledged VB6 guru. A solid grasp on
functions and subroutines allows you to reuse code and functionality
throughout your program and in future programs.Functions and Subroutines in VB6 tutorial
Once you have finished these tutorials you should have a very good
understanding of the fundamentals of the Visual Basic 6 language and
development environment. Feel free to download some more advanced
tutorials and continue learning on your own. If you have any questions
or comments related to this Visual Basic 6 guide please post them
You should use Package & Deployment wizard (its there in visual studio 6 only under menu) Create a package, include all dependencies, include database file (i guess you are using msaccess) Once the package is created, go to Deployment wizard, to include the package created, you'll then get one Setup (as usually softwares are packaged)
If you go like this, you dont have to worry about the dependencies in your project or any runtime lib that might required. It will work anywhere where you install your software like u usually install others.
