Some of us technology minded folks are charged with supporting legacy software, developed with Visual Studio 6 (particulary Visual Basic 6), and with the iminent release of Windows 8, there is some worry about whether our support tools will work with it. This tutorial will (hopefully) help you get VB6 installed on your Windows 8 system!

Internet Explorer Style Information Bar in JavaScript

Internet Explorer has an interesting, although sometimes considered maligned, notification method for unsafe code execution, downloads etc. To its credit, it is an easy and somewhat unobtrusive way to alert users to a change in the Web site or in their account.

The pdf is located on a separate machine in New Jersey. When they the click the fle name the vb6 calls a sql 2000 stored procedure on the NJ machine which executes a com on the New Jersey machine which renames the pdf and also copies it to another pdf using filecopy in the com in the same directory.
