This list offers 50 popular VB code enterprise software downloads posted on our sister site, VBCode.com. Some downloads are available as Zip files, while others present the code right on the page. In either case, users can e-mail themselves the link to the page.
The rankings are based on two factors: number of hits received in the first half of 2005 and the level of purported usefulness for an entire enterprise. As a result of the second criteria, some bits of VB code that perform a single function, like sending an e-mail or shutting down a computer, have been omitted from this list.
(Editor's note: This chart was updated Aug. 23, 2005. The link to the item called "complete institute management system" was removed after SearchVB.com staff found that the URL for this item on VBCode.com was no longer there. In addition, the item called "Complete FTP application," which had been ranked #37, was moved to #4 after SearchVB.com discovered that more than 3,300 page views for that entry had not been counted. Finally, a new item was added to the list -- #48, "Connect Access with SQLServer." If you find any other URLs that don't work, let us know.)
