I have a PC with Windows 7 pro installed, it also has visual studio 2008 (NET framework 3.5) and sql server 2008 pro.
Now I must support legacy apps, developed with Visual Basic 6. Searching on Internet I found that must be necessary to install WinXP Virtual PC in order to run them.
I read the information avalable of that item, like an application installed under xp virtual pc can be seen and executed in win 7 pro.
After the Reading I realize that the core functions of legacy applications mentioned earlier, are the ADO and DAO components. So I´m confused now, ¿can those applications interact with the database already installed? or ¿do I have to dowload some versiï¿½n of SQL Server Express Edition?
I really appreciate any help
