It was ported directly from a Visual Basic 6 application, which was upgraded from VB3, which was then translated to VB.NET and then translated to C#.
Of course it also went from .NET 1 to 3.5 and it was last updated to 4.0 where it's currently still at, running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine using IIS 7.5.
The last browser it works on is Internet Explorer 10, results may vary for IE11, Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
The database was upgraded from dBase to SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005.
As you can see, it's all fairly modern and well maintained.
A team of 10 developers and sysadmins is working around the clock to fix work around any issues.
Management is talking about migrating to the cloud, but they have safety and privacy concerns.
Meanwhile, they just bought a new server to burn some budget before the end of the year.

That comment is not half as strange as you think it is... Sigh | :sigh:
