The extension VB identifies source code files of the programming language Visual Basic.
Unlike often reading, VB is not the extension for VBScript files. This is vbs.
Nor is Visual Basic equivalent to Visual Basic for Applications (for applications). It's similar, but it works differently.
Microsoft Visual Basic is a relatively easy-to-learn object-oriented programming language that still allows the creation of complex applications. It allows the rapid development of graphical interfaces and has a compiler.
Visual Basic appeared in 1991 and has been constantly evolving. After the version 6 of 1998 appeared with Visual BAsic.NET the successor, which contains however significant changes. These are so profound that an implementation of older source code is required.
The content of VB files can be edited with any text editor, but creating a working application requires a Visual Basic IDE. This is also recommended for editing.
Most often resolving problems with opening VB files is very simple. Just install an appropriate program that supports such files. All of the listed programs support VB files, but may vary in offered function and purpose. Some programs may be capable only of viewing contents of VB files or offer file conversion options, but may not be capable of editing such files.
It is possible that although a compatible program has been installed on user’s system, it is not used by the system to open it. This may happen because no default application was associated with this type of files. To associate VB files with given application, select "Open with" from drop-down menu (accessed by right-clicking on the file). Then select from the list the program or application you want to be used to open this type of file. If the Adobe Dreamweaver applications is not on the list, select "Browse" option in order to manually locate the directory where Adobe Dreamweaver has been installed.
Sometimes problems with opening VB files may not lie with the application itself, but can arise due to other causes, such as:
