VB6 has web classes that you can use to create a site and access it that way. I don't know if you can access VB through web, use ASP to do that, or let them download an executable...

Maybe with terminal services, but that would be expensive. ASP would be best.

Ding Ding Ding on sal he is correct.

People need to see that one lanuage does not fit all projects.

sometimes you have to bite the bullet and rewrite in ASP.
