As the VB6 migration deadline looms closer, business are starting to push back. Microsoft has softened their position quite a bit with respect to support of the VB6 run-time. Now, the VB6 run-time will be supported until 2017. In addition, Microsoft has set aside special support options for customers on a per seat basis for 3 years. This means that you can actually purchase support for VB6 run-time and design-time issues. There are strict entry criteria for entrance and the pricing is pretty steep but at least, the sky isn’t going to fall in on those LOB applications that run VB6 legacy run-time components. Still, it is no excuse to remain on the legacy platform.
