Default Re: VB Programming

im working with Zodiak on creating an OS, PM me or him if you wanna help.
No, you couldnt do it, you need to create binary files and stuff to get it loaded, you could create the loader in C++ with binary files aswell, and then do the GUI in VB, thats probably what im gonna do ,ive got a tutorial on OS's somewhere, give me ur email and ill send it to you, i dont know the origional address of the page

I'm hoping to work with Techy Geek and zodiak.

Don't use VB. It's platform specific (to Windows) and doesn't run at a low enough level.

You need to use something like C++ with inline Assembly.
