By 2015 our VB6 Application is being sold all over the World, we got it translated to English, Spanish, Portugues and Italian, it runs perfectly on PCs from Windows XP up until Windows 8.1. Now more than ever we need a sollid path for the future. We benchmarked some of our kernel critical algorithms on the .NET Framework, and the results were surprisingly poor. With the NET framework the performace drops by more than 40% even after doing some re engineering to optimise it. VB.NET is definitively not our path, not only because of the huge time, resources and money required, but also because of the poor performance expected at the end.
