See more: VB VB.NET
I have programmed in VB6 for years and now converting to Visual Studio 2010 Visual Basic. It has framework 4.0. I use to use a Winsock control to connect to a barcode reader. Simple connection and I'm looking for just the data comming in from the scanner and also send data out to scanner to trigger a read.

I cannot figure out how to do it with sockets. My system is Windows 7 64 bit.

Any help would be great!!!

Judging by the question, it looks like you are not ready to learn it. Sorry. Perhaps learn some basics of programming and come back.

Good luck,

There is no such thing as "Visual Studio Sockets". Case closed.

Some final remarks:

Visual Studio is the IDE.

VB.NET is a language (VB is not supported, VB.NET is absolutely different language). It is processes using a VB.NET compiler which produces the code.

Visual Studio 2010 does have VB.NET compiler. The compiler is bundled with (freely distributed) .NET Framework. You don't really need Visual Studio to build projects and solutions. It's done by MSBuild.

Sockets library comes with the assembly System.DLL. It comes with .NET Framework. You can use the class System.Net.Sockets.Socket,[^] or other classes, such as System.Net.Sockets.TcpListener/TcpClient.

Run-time of the application does not need Visual Studio.

Santa Clause does not exist.

Do you need some information on where children come from?
