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 or to search for visual studio 6 download on "bad" sites, 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.
For those of you that already own VB6 but are looking for good add-ins and downloads for it here is a list of a few good ones.
Often when doing Visual Basic development we run into "stuff" we need to make our VB applications more responsive, interesting, creative, fun, etc. Here is a compiled list of Other non VB6 Software and resources that are free to download and will help improve your application:
