I am currently working in Vb6 and ASP 2.0 and planning to switch to .Net. I have very little knowledge about it, so would be obliged if someone offers some answers to these Qs.

1. What software do I need ? MS Visual Studio.Net ?

2. Can I have VB6 and VB.net running in the same m/c ?

3. Which .net framework should I install ?

4. what are the system requirements ? RAM / Processor / HDD Space etc

5. Can s/w developed in .net run without the framework ? What files should be included in the installation CD ? (Like just providing an .exe in VB6 doesn't work if target m/c doesn't have VB runtime)

No You will need to Delpoy the Requried .NET Freamwork to any client machines but once .NET is installed your apps will work fine

.NET has been issued as a Windows Update so most Machines will already have it installed
