You can get it from here. Free Developer Tools - Visual Studio 2010 Express | Microsoft Visual Studio. I think you may need a Windows Live account (free) to download it.

Actually you can download it but you need to register it and that's when you need the Windows Live ID.

So you mean to say that the installer for VB.net is already integrated in Microsoft Visual Studio? Also, has there been changes in the syntax from the earlier version of VB.net to the its latest version?

Visual VB Express 2010 is a cut down version of Visual Studio 2010 with only VB.NET installed. You can also get the other languages, C# etc as separate express editions but they don't integrate together as in the full Visual Studio environment.

The syntax is much the same as previous versions with some extensions.

Thanks. So you mean to say that every VB releases after VB 6.0 are considered VB.net? I really feel like moving to a higher programming language since the one I'm used to is way dated.

VB.NET is not the same as Visual Basic 6.0 and below. What you need is the .NET Framework.
While VB.NET shares a syntax similar to the original, the end result is not the same.

This might help: https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikiped...nd_previous.29

You would use Visual Studio to write and compile VB.NET but to run it you need the .NET Framework. It might also be advantageous but VB.NET and C# can pretty much exists in the same project and work together. As both compile to the same Common Language Runtime (CLR). So you can pretty much mix and match if you like. :P

Yes all VB.NET versions are similar and as logicearth says they are completely different from VB6. In fact they are so different in the features they offer that some consider them different languages that have a similar syntax. VB.NET is a full featured object oriented programming language.

No problem dothackhje. It may be a bit more difficult but don't let it put you off it's still not that difficult.

Thanks for the motivation, but I must admit I had to go through the ups and downs keeping up with programming. I may not be one of the best but being worthy of being called 'good enough' with programming would suffice to satisfy my desire to learn this stuff. Wish me luck I guess.
