A lot of stuff went on while I was away on vacation. Visual Studio 6, Service Pack 6 is now available for download, or you can order it on CD for the price of shipping.

Service Pack 6
Microsoft Service Pack 6 for Visual Basic 6.0, Visual C++ 6.0 with Visual SourceSafe 6.0d addresses known issues with Visual Basic 6.0, Visual C++ 6.0 and Visual Source Safe 6.0. This service pack does not contain fixes for Visual InterDev 6.0, Visual FoxPro 6.0, and Visual J++ 6.0, as the mainstream life-cycle for these products has ended.

  • thank you
  • thanks
  • Is there any possibility of a Visual Studio .NET 2003 service pack? We've upgraded to this version from VC++ 6 (and, sadly, are not in a position to downgrade to the earlier version), but are suffering from severe losses of productivity because the support for simple things like adding classes, variables, and methods does not work correctly. Since Whidbey has been substantially delayed, we're being pretty badly hurt here.
  • Everybody!
  • Can anyone tell me whether this service pack (SP6) is the last service pack for Visual Studio 6.0?
  • Will there come a ProcessorPack for SP6 ?
  • no clue
  • I'm going to check into the questions asked here and I'll be sure to post if I get any new information.


  • update from SP5?
    thanks for M$.(^_^)
  • Hi Max,

    I'm not sure if any other SPs are required. I'll try an install tonight and let you know.


  • There is no processor pack for SP6 nor will there be. If you need the processor pack features you need to continue using SP5, or upgrade to VC7/7.1 which integrates the processor pack features directly.
