Visual Basic 6

Microsoft ended mainstream support (i.e., free technical support) for Visual Basic 6.0 on March 31, 2005. This move indicates that there will be no more bug fixes, service packs, new versions, or, most importantly, enhancements to the programming language. This is worrisome to the classic VB development community because VB6 remains the preferred approach for many kinds of applications; in particular, mainstream business applications with a database component.
