    Plan on rewriting a 16bit VB3 application, which anguage and database.
    The program will be distributed to quite a few organizations and needs to accommodate up to 100 concurrent users.
    VB6 or Delphi ?

    Sounds like Delphi is faster and has less supporting files = less conflicts.

    Database
    Prefer a SQL type, but they all appear to carry high runtime distribution costs. So Access,Foxpro,
    or ..

    Any thoughts ??

    As for the database, check out Sybase SQL Anywhere (also called Adaptive Server Anywhere). This is a full SQL solution, much better than Access, and easy upgradable to a multi-user version and to the more powerful Adaptive Server Enterprise DB.

    The older Anywhere versions came with a "runtime engine" that could be distributed for free. This engine has some limitations, but can be used for non-critical applications.
