Visual Basic 6 did cause a significant number of fairly small changes to the way developers should create COM/ActiveX components. A review of the major changes from VB5 to VB6 can be found in the "What's new in Visual Basic 6.0" section of your MSDN online CD-ROM. The new edition of this book was reviewed from start to finish with these changes in mind. All of the components were tested and modified as necessary to take into account these changes. The contents of the book not only reflect the changes, but also the consequences of those changes on component development.

Because of the approach used - treating this as a pure "VB6" book, we do not at this time have a "change list" that details all of the differences between the two books. At the same time, the differences only represent about 20% of the total content, so it may not be worthwhile to purchase the VB6 edition of the book if you have the VB5 edition.

If you are working with both version of Visual Basic, we recommend choosing the VB6 edition of the book, as it will be fairly easy to see which features are missing from VB5
