Updates & Corrections

The book "Teach Yourself Visual Basic 5 in 24 Hours" was written for those who own or choose to purchase the full version of VB5 from Microsoft, as well as being an introduction to those using the VB5 CCE that we provide for your convenience on the accompanying cd rom.

The VB5 CCE is the same limited edition software that Microsoft provides as an introduction to the Visual Basic 5 software, and does not have all of the same functionality as the full version software. The example on page 22 of the book refers you to the sample from the PGuide folder which is found only on the full version Visual Basic 5 software cd rom from Microsoft. The rest of the source files referred to in the book are installed to your hard drive from our cd rom. Some controls and wizards available in the full version software, are not available in the control creation edition.

The Help file is found in the VB5 Control Creation Edition program group by clicking the README icon.
