Visual Studio 8 on Win 10 Pro PC

I am attempting to improve my VB programing skills using the textbook "Programming in Visual Basic 2010," by Julia Case Bradley & Anita C. Millspaugh. The lessons eventually cover Visual Studio and .NET. I am currently using Access 2010 and am in a total 64-bit environment.

Question: Microsoft Visual Studio 8 folders exist in my Program Files (x86) folder. Is it usable for my lessons or just a place holder for future installs? How can test usage - where to start - what to look for? Also is it likely to contain Visual C++ language? TIA JP

Re: Visual Studio 8 on Win 10 Pro PC

I suggest you install Visual Studio Community from here:

This is the latest free edition. Select Visual Basic and you should be good to go. Once installed you can install other IDE's e.g. C#, C++ etc. C# would be the obvious choice after you've done learning vb.net
