Convert Visual Basic 3 Binary Files?

Jun 24, 2009

I wrote a programme about 12 years ago in visual basic 3.Since then I have moved interstate and changed jobs quite a few time and lost the original Visual Basic 3 discs.Visual Basic 3 saved the files in a binary format that has not been used in any other version of Visual Basic. So now I cannot read or modify the files.


Visual Basic 2008 How To Get Binary

Feb 21, 2010

I was wondering if I could somehow binary coding, if not all coding of a file.In Visual Basic 2008, I use this method:I click a button on a form, I browse the file, I select itand then I click open and it fills a RichTextBox with 1 and 0's in binary form.. You know, drag a .exe file into notepad and you get random jiberish and inunderstandable characters.Well, this method does just that, BUT! It's waaaay to slow

Dim input As New System.IO.FileStream("File to get binary from.exe", IO.FileMode.Open) 'Create a new File Stream
Dim bytes() As Byte

Visual Basic 6 Runtime Extended Files?

Jul 6, 2011

I am trying to locate the runtime install for Visual Basic 6 Runtime Extended Files. I am not a developer just the guy truing to get it onto the systems for them. My question is simple anI hope the answer is the same. We are converting our systemsfrom Windows XP to Windows 7 and we need the extended runtime modules so a number of our applications will actually work.

I cannot locate the install for this in the Visual Studio download area. Is the re-distributable part of the studio install (so it should be on one of the developers systems) or do I download it from somewhere else.

I currently have these group of files I want to rename:

C:Users medinaDocuments estenviromentTestfolderfile1-1111.doc

C:Users medinaDocuments estenviromentTestfolderfile3-1111.doc

Visual Basic 2010 - Correctly Reference Files?

Dec 30, 2011

I have an issue with creating a VB program. I reference files on my computer that are displayed in a webbrowser in the program. The issue comes when I install the program on another computer because of the file path. The program is looking for the files on the computer I created the program on because of the file path, instead of looking for the files within the program resource files.

For example, I created the program on Computer A and referenced File "C:ComputerAMy DocumentsHelp.txt"

Once installed on Computer B, the program doesnt display the image because it's looking for "Computer A" in the file path.How do I correct my programming so that the files are universial and can be found on any computer the program is installed on?

Deleting Rows From .sdf Files Using Database Explorer Utility Of Visual Basic?

Feb 14, 2011

I am trying to delete rows of an .sdf file using the Database Explorer utility of Visual Basic. When doing so, I get the following error message:No rows were deleted.

A problem occurred attempting to delete row 1.

Error Source: Microsoft.VisualStudio.DataTools. Error Message: The row value(s) updated or deleted either do not make the row unique or they alter multiple rows(48 rows). Correct the errors and attempt to delete the row again or press ESC to cancel the change(s). It is correct that the data in the rows are not unique (and not supposed to be; there is no "error" to correct), but why should this prevent deleting them?

.net - Which Version Of Visual Studio 2010 Contains Visual Basic SharePoint Templates

Aug 5, 2011

Does anybody know which version of Visual Studio 2010 contains the full set of Visual Basic SharePoint Templates? I am about to embark on a project to create Visual Web Parts to be used in a SharePoint report.

At the moment I am using Visual Studio 2008 and even though the WSPBuilder is installed none of the relevant SharePoint templates are present.Having searched SO and the web, most advise to install the templates via the Visual Studio command prompt: devenv /installvstemplates

Alas the Visual Studio command prompt is also missing from my VS2008 installation.So, the question remains: which version of VS2010 contains what I need for pain-free SharePoint development? There is a rather large price different between VS2010 Professional and VS2010 Premium, so can anyone tell me if the cheaper version (VS2010 Professional) contains all the Sharepoint templates?
