Is it at all possible to download an older version of Visual Basic (like 2 or 3 or 4) for free? I don't want 5 or 6, since I've
got a bad computer. If anyone knows of a site, please tell me, thank you

Older versions of VB create 16-bit applications, which are no longer suited for today's environment.
If you cannot use Visual Basic because of your computer then I would suggest programming in PowerBasic in DOS.
Although the VB IDE doesn't require that much juice to run...

Here is a link to Microsoft's VB5 Control Creation Edition. It is a free
download, although I am not sure what all can be done with it.

As I remember, there is a VB that comes with MS Office

But that's just VBA, you can't make an exe or anything, and it's really limited...

LOL, yes, I know VBA is powerful, but not as powerful VB. That was really the point I was trying to make.

Yes, but its probably more useful to him than VB 3/4 , and also its readily available if you already have MS Office.

Yes i do as well, but they're either illegal, infected with who knows how many virii, or just rubbish.
Best off buying a copy, or obtaining a legally liscensed one.
Yknow that its cheaper to buy the Standard, and upgrade to the Professional than to just buy the professional straight off.
