    First of all, I have just completed my C++ course, so I know a little programming.

    Now, I want to start with programming bots for IM. Really simple bots! That visit a site, register, and give output.

    I have VB6, and currently I'm downloading VS 2010 Ultimate.

    So, which one should I go for? VB .NET is what I want to try since I've heard a lot about it.

    Any suggestions?

    Go with C# and learn multithreading sockets, it's hot for bots :)

    Go with .net, even the free express editions are fine for what you want.

    C# or .net is the same, VB6 is pretty old!

    I recommend you to learn some basic stuff before you attempt to work on something that you wanna sell.

    Yeah I forgot to mention. I won't sell anything I make. It will solely be for personal use. Selling stage would come only when the tools is perfect.

    And, I have taken up courses in C++ and VB6. I know HTML, CSS and a little bit of PHP also. So, I'm not new to programming. It's just a matter of remembering the syntax of the language.

    I'm good at C++. But it's too low-level language. Bot coding is difficult with C++ as compared to .NET is what I've read at many places.

    I suggest you to start with C#, I've been coding some serious tools for myself for years and the development process is so fast that no language can beat it! Just remember to keep up your C++ skills, because it's one hell of a fast language :)

    Btw, have you already got your copy of HTTP Programming Recipes for C# Bots? It's a great book to start with if you're not too familiar with C# and bot programming.

    Okay. And for C#, which IDE or compiler would you recommend? And should I directly start with this book, or first go with basics like getting used with the syntax and all?

    It certainly won't hurt to get familiar with the syntax and stuff before diving into bot programming! I've been using Visual Studio since the version 2003 so if you can get your hands on Visual Studio 2010 (any version, even the free Express ones) you're good to go! Free open source alternative would be SharpDevelop but I like to use commercial products with good support.

    If you know c++ ; C# wouldn't be a problem.
    Just start making small apps & bots; you'll learn while coding

    Okay so I'll go with VS 2010!

    So C# it is!

    ===

    BTW, is it difficult to build GUI's using C#?

    Building GUI's is like the easiest task in C# especially when using Visual Studio 2010. It has all kinds of visual guides to make correct positioning easy! :) Good luck!
