VB6 is quite easy to interface with DLLs and Windows API, it has drawbacks (it is single thread for example) but all are easy to work around.

Also it is harder to disassemble and that may be desirable. If you think that one of the biggest X-ray inspection machine producers has the controller part of the software in VB6 and its customers are the major multinational food companies...
