Default Cant find downloadable code for book

I have a copy of Visual C#.NET: A guide for VB6 Developers. 2002 ISBN 1-86100-717-5

I can not find the downloadable code for this book. Does anyone know why?

Yes Hal, it does get tiring answering this question over and over.

But I guess that is why most of the questions asked here are so inane. People either don't take the time to look them up in the resources:
    MSDN Knowledgebase - http://msdn.microsoft.com/
    GotDotNet - http://www.gotdotnet.com/
    CodeProject - http://www.codeproject.com/
    C# Corner - http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/
    C# Help - http://www.csharphelp.com/
that many of us seasoned veterans use.

They don't even seem to be able to use Google to search for specific information or references to source, as some of us do all the time. (how do you think we find the sites above?).

In this specific case they can't seem to follow links that refer to general information on this site (like Browse Books) or don't even bother to read the pages if they do (like seeing a link to Download code, which has a link to 'Why can't I find the code for my book?", which leads to a link that says 'Not all of the books are owned by WROX so go to Apress Press')

They just want the answer. But this means they may get THE answer but still not know why it 'works that way' (bad foundation of knowledge).

So Cmarek just go to http://support.apress.com/code_listing.asp?s=0&view=all and find your book.

Ah- but he didn't ask where the code was or why he couldn't find it.. he just asked if anyone knew why... and I said yes.

OK OK Guys. I am sorry. (truly) I actually did visit the site that explains why some (MANY now) wrox books do not have their code on the WROX downloads site any more. Somehow (I was very tired) I missed the APEX link. Please give me a break on this and I will try to behave better in the future. I do thank you for the info anyway. I hate looking so foolish on such a public forum
