What language is SpywareBlaster written in?
You will find a hint about this right in Javacool's FAQ thread here (number 2 ):
I am surprised that it is build in VB6, I would have thought more along the lines of VB.NET.
Why I was thinking VB.NET is because it has a lot of the Internet access components built in, as well as cryptography and multi-threading in the .NET FrameWork.
Speaking from a position outside of Javacool development (I'm not connected to it in any way), I'm glad it isn't built in any .NET tool because wouldn't everyone who tried to run such a program be required to load the .NET support framework on to their systems?
Yes, that would be the case, but because of the pure-power of the new .NET FrameWork and the relative ease of accessing internal Windows API throught the .NET NameSpace, the power given to the developer far out-weighs the consequences.
For instance, Registry access routines, VB6 requires at least six pages of code to do Registry access correctly, VB.NET, just one little line, Microsoft.Win32.Registry, all access routines are right there, easy to use and access.
I am just kind of surprised that he didn't choose VB.NET since it has given the developer so much more power with easier access.
oh contraire mon ami, the pure power of .net viurses/trojans/worms/hijacks far outweight the benefits.
So how come the name is JavaCool, if the software is written in VB?
For 2 reasons, actually.
#1 - the man likes his coffee with his programming.
#2 - he's a pretty cool guy
