VB dll
« on: July 27, 2018, 08:11:46 PM »

Sometime, during the last century, I wrote a little program to control one of my milling machines. I can not now find that program, but I've found the compiled dll, instructions for using said dll, a .exe demonstration fprogram, and the Vb code for the form, and another basic module and the vbp file. Once I'd downloaded and installed msvbvm.exe, the demo runs fine in windows 10. I'm guessing, that back then, my program was also written in Visual Basic. I think I can probably manually convert the vb code to freebasic, at least enough for testing, and also generate a new form. There are only buttons, and textboxes on the form, so I'd probably use winfbe and the visual designer. Is the VB dll likely to be usable, and how do I access it?
