2. Software Overview

Microsoft Visual Basic is an object oriented programming language and integrated development environment used to create programs for the Windows operating system. It is no longer supported and has since been replaced by Visual Basic .NET.

Visual Basic was one of the first computer development systems that included both a language and an integrated development environment (IDE). The IDE allows you to develop user interfaces with a simple drag and drop approach. It is a good tool for Rapid Application Development (RAD) because of its ability to quickly build prototypes of programs.

Because Visual Basic is no longer supported it is not a recommended development solution. If you liked the development environment and code of VB you might be interested at looking into Visual Basic .NET.
