Just install it, start up Visual Studio, select New Project, select Visual Basic choose Windows Forms Application or Console Application and you are ready to start programming.

You just have to run Visual studio...
the vb.net will be installed (with it (directly)

the vb.net is the updated version from Visual Studio. (old version vb 6.0 does not include framework while this include it so...)

How to use:?
As simple as VB 6.0
run the application
select new project
Select windows form/or else (depend on your form type)
(you can also set frmework version if using visual studio, if VB.net express then manage frmaework by going to project > Compile option and Set advanced setting)

Start Coding as the vb6.0
here the coding somewhat differs than of it too but simple change is given...
such as: textbox1.caption is converted to textbox1.text and this type of changes are observed by me...
