I hate to sound greedy but...
Honestly, I run the VB6 IDE on Windows 7 (64bit) and it runs just fine unless you're subclassing (but it never worked well for subclassing). This concept of editing VB6 in the same IDE you write your .NET is cool, but what I'd really like to see is the VB6 VM re-written as a .NET library, or a compiler added to .NET for VB6 or they could just open source the thing, and the community would do it for them, after all what's the big secret... the code for it is over 20 years old.

...andalso I disponible to help developing, especially in IDE, because is not more difficult :)
(I have muliple corporate programs written in VB6 wich requested to maintain)

Hi Matthias, if you were to put the code on Git hub or shared it, I for one would like to assist in it's development. There are a few little tweaks like keyboard shortcuts to fold code etc. that I would like to add.
Like a lot of software applications, we would all love to rewrite them again from scratch ;) I have a VB6 project that is 20 years old, but maintaining it is more important than rewriting it!
@Chris Actually, it does not sound greedy to me; at least I see that also others have mostly the exact same thoughts I had. I haven´t worked on the project for almost two years now... what irritates me is the fact that people always try to get hands on the code, but never offer cooperation. This is probably one of the main reasons why the code is still closed. I can say that I have learned a lot while working on the Visual Studio extension... and if I would have to write it from scratch, I would do it completely different (-:
