Sample Program Version Information
|Concepts are Still Good...
While much of the code on TheScarms.com is now dated, most of the concepts presented
are still valid. Over time there have been many changes to the tools (Visual Studio, .Net framework...)
used to create code but, under the hood, much of this is just a new wrapper on the underlying Windows
API code which has changed surprisingly little. As a result, the majority of the concepts
presented on TheScarms are still valid.
|.NET Code Version Information
The VB.NET and C# programs and code snippets were tested
using .NET 2003 and Version 1.1 of the .NET Framework. Most of this code can be easily
converted to newer versions of the .Net framework. Code itself typically works fine but
WinForm and ASPX UI stuff may need some manual intervention as things have changed
All of the code samples in TheScarms Classic VB 6.0
area were written in Visual Basic 6 SP3 and were tested on Windows 95, 98, ME,
NT4, 2K, and are mostly Windows XP/Vista/7 compatible.
Many of the programs reference the Visual Basic 5 version
of the Windows Common Controls so they will work under both VB6 and VB5.
VB.NET represents a significant change from VB6. Most of the VB6.0 code will not
migrate to VB.NET without manual intervention.
