beginning with VB


I would like to try to use Visual Basic with Creo.

Never tried, don't made any VB programs since a long time...

I would like to learn, je for seeing for the moment.

So, where I could look how to start ?

What have I to install and setup for beginning. (VB Community ?)

Then, Are there some tutorials to start to develop ?




Hi Dominique,

     Look at this location in your PC (Creo installation location)

          C:\ProgramFiles\PTC\Creo2-amd64-M120\Creo 2.0\Common Files\M120\vbapi

You can find

     vbug.pdf → You can find how to start with vbapi

Hi and thanks,

This documents seems to be what I was looking for.

However, at the very beginning of it, I'm afraid to see I'm not able to start (on page 20).

We can see a main Window "Microsoft Visual Basic" and they speak about VBA.

So, I should find this on within Excel or Word (currently on Office 2016).

I've also installed Visual Studio Express 2015.

but, I can't find something like this.

So, where could I find those Visual Basic Windows ?


Hi Dominique,

    You can use both MS Office products or Visual studio, You mentioned you have Visual studio 2015.

It is better to go for advanced features.

Anyway you can access Microsoft Visual basic window by following below steps

(Sorry for inconvenience, I dont have MS Excel 2016 - Pictures shows from Excel 2007)

     1 . Go to Excel Options

Hi and thanks,

I'll begin as you mention with Excel.

However, "my" Visual studio is "Visual Studio Express 2015 for Windows desktop.

It's a free edition distributed by Microsoft.

I'll try it later.
