Microsoft Visual Basic is a development environment used to create programs or applications for the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems. To do this, it uses a computer language that was originally called Basic but has been transformed in an advanced language also called Visual Basic. This language makes it particularly easy to create effective applications because it offers a working tool as a studio equipped with necessary materials to keep you moving.
Microsoft Visual Basic ships in three packages and sometimes various formats. The way you launch it depends on how it was installed. We will first analyze the studio and review some of its equipments, and then we will start creating small applications.
Starting Microsoft Visual Basic depends on how it was set up on your machine. If it were installed as a stand alone product, it would be available under the Programs menu; otherwise, it might be under the Microsoft Visual Studio group of applications. However it was installed, now is the time to launch it.
