It still has On Error Resume Next - so it's still garbage.
Not knowing how to code doesn't make the language garbage it makes the coder garbage.
This is not knowing how to code:
objShell.Run strRunCmd, 1, True
This is how to handle the error properly and reset properly:
objShell.Run strRunCmd, 1, True'True means wait for the app to exit before continuing the scriptIf Err.Number <> 0Then
ErrMsg Err.Number, Err.Description, "Error with objShell.Run [" & strRunCmd & "]", TrueEndIfOnErrorGoTo0
If you don't like it, don't use it. All of you VB haters make me laugh. Calling something that is used by thousands of programmers "Garbage", is just childish. The opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference.
Seriously you are on this same issue, get over it, most of us here don't give a rats about the index and put very little faith in the veracity of it's results. Why would we, the majority of us use c# and live peaceably with the VB.net community despite the barrage of insult hurled at them from time to time.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
It is a lie, You're confounding Classic VB (1998, 20 years old language) with VB.NET (an C# equivalent language).
No, I'm not.
Saying that VB.NET s a C# equivalent is nonsense; they target the same runtime, but so does managed C++. No one in their right mind would compare VB to C++, calling them equivalent. It implies that you could take a VB.NET programmer and drop him/her in an "equivalent" environment. You can't
I did it, I have found not articles about 50% of VB.NET projects fails, again you are lying.
I could offer help, but I'm weirdly enough not in a helpfull mood

I'm probably one of those unfortunate that had a manager who felt an urge to develop enterprise level in VB...
From your post I can conclude you are not in the same boat...
The day you will be curious enough to check how TIOBE's index built, you will understand how it is useless and on the same day you will understand how VB is limited...

It's pretty much the same as C# though.
Although lately it hasn't been given the same attention as C#.
It works the same for .NET, but I don't even think .NET Core supports VB.
As far as I'm concerned that's Microsoft telling us VB is still supported, but not further developed.
Anyway, that's not really the language's fault...
Ok, so VB is or wasn't supported for .NET Core 1.x, Portable Framework, Unity, some Azure functionality...
It seems VB always comes last for Microsoft, if at all.
And then sometimes, someone, like you, comes along who loves VB and promises to make it all better and it gets a little bit better only for VB to fall behind again.
Yeah, VB was my first language and as such it has a special place in my heart, but I wouldn't recommend VB as a career path for anyone.
Programmers aren't using it, employers aren't asking for it.
It only, somehow, has a high position in a weird TIOBE index.
I would say that such highly hypothetical code has nothing to do with nothing...
I also would say that you do not know how to write efficient code in C#, if you think you have to add all those brackets, or that this is the only way to write it...
You also totally drop the factor of experience... C# can be done in different ways, and be still perfectly readable for the experienced...
