“Back to the future” as Todd put it. That’s right, the Interop Forms Toolkit has been updated to support Visual Studio 2010.
This was just a minor release in which the setup authoring was updated so that the toolkit now supports both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010. The toolkit features remain unchanged from v2.0. It still supports adding controls, methods, properties, and events to Visual Basic 6 applications using Visual Basic.NET.
So if you’re working on VB6 interop or migration projects and are using the toolkit, have no fear, you can upgrade to Visual Studio 2010 and install the latest version of the Interop Forms Toolkit. Please uninstall any prior toolkit before installing this one.
For more information and download details please see:
For more information on phased migration and interop please see:
And if you have questions or feedback please visit the Visual Basic Interop and Upgrade Forum.
Where is the "Visual Basic 6.0 InteropForm Library" template in VS2010?
I have a question related to using Interop form toolkit. Can I host WPF control in vb6 app using Interpp Form 2.1 toolkit.
I hope you will give some way to do this.
I know it is sort of a pathetic request, but we would dearly love an update for Interop Forms Toolit to allow use with VS2012 and VB6. It would allow us to keep pulling some old stuff forward.
Is Interop Forms Toolit available to VS2012?
When the Interop toolkit was upgraded from 2.0 to 2.1 to allow the toolkit to work in VS2010, one feature stopped working (adding variables to the globals collection).
NOTE: It does work when the target framework is 3.5 or lower but definitely does not work when the target framework is 4.0
If there is an update to the toolkit, can this please be addressed.
