    Will Visual Basic based program be deleted after Windows10 Upgrade?


    Hey guys please help me. I want to upgrade to Windows 10 but I am worried that my visual basic created program might get deleted and it is very important to me and it is not a commercial software but a private software created with Visual Basic I guess and I can't get it installed as the person who owns the software will be disturbed and also it contains some records.

    During the installation as far as I remember cmd (as administrator) was also used so considering that I think it might stop working but if any one c help me in this problem it would be really great.

    Doing WIndows Upgrades normally do not cause loss of data or programs. Doing a Windows Clean Install will usually will wipe everything out first. It's possible for older programs that use VBA may have problems so be sure to make a copy of anything you don't want to lose, anything that you created or that exists nowhere else.

    You're welcome. Be prepared for it taking awhile, a lot depends upon your Internet speed, took me a bit over 5 hours for the download then install on a 1Mbps connection. Have done 4 and doing another now.
