While using really old software; like Visual Basic Pro 5.0,may not fit in the millennial mindset or the Microsoft marketing strategy; as aretired old fashion engineer and sometime software guy, Windows 10 does offersome stability and neat features I like; but, I cannot afford to buy and learn something to replace VB5. During the upgrade from Win-7 to 10 it began working okay andwhile I rarely use the ‘help’ in the VB5 editor, now in Win-10 the Help willnot work. The same problem came up when I went from a Win-XP machine to a Win-7 PC, but it was fairly east to fix. Now no matter what I do the VB5 ‘help’ willnot work – it takes me to some dumb MS page with Win-10 fixes or suggestions. Yeah, maybe a temp job at Wal-Mart will earn me some extra cash for MS to spend, but I refuse to bend to the farleft methods to drive us old guys out of the programming world.
There must be a way to overcome the Microsoft migrating to Apple marketing strategy; that is to hook people into their software then bleed them completely dry of their green. There must be a fix so I can use the VB5 help files.
