You can install VB 6. You have to do the install with escalated privileges,
by right clinking the setup.exe, and (Run as Admin) that's the only way it's
going to install, even if you're already admin.
You can only install VSS 2005 on Vista.
If you're doing Web development, then the version of IIS 7 on Premium is not
a full version of IIS that will match IIS 6. You have to upgrade to Vista
Business, Ultimate or Enterprise. http://kb.wisc.edu/helpdesk/page.php?id=5175
Vista is very touchy about anything non Vista compliant. You install it at
your own risk.
