DF1 Open Source for Visual Basic 2005

Archie has started a SourceForge project for his AB DF1 code running under VB 2005. He has checked in a full first set of files (unlike many SourceForge projects which get created but NEVER have files :-\ )

http://sourceforge.net/projects/abdf1/

I haven't looked over his code yet, plus all I have is VB 2003 .NET.

Hopefully Microsoft has STOPPED the old VB issue that each new rev of VB is neither 100% forward nor backward compatible ... one always need to "tweak" a few lines to make the port work. I've used VB 1.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 and now VB 2003 and none of these have liked old code being pulled forward.
