16-Bit Programs

Question:
Is there ANY way to write a program in Visual Basic 5.0 for Windows 95 and then have people running Windows 3.1 be able to use it?

Answer:
Nope. VB 4.0 was the last version to support 16-bit development. If youwant to do development for that platform, I’d recommend staying with VB3.0. It was the last really good release for 16-bit Windows — VB 4.016-bit was slow as a dog.
