The download and installation procedure is typical of any software. Using the download page, it’s a simple matter of entering some personal information (name, e-mail address, etc) along with a serial number, and selecting download via FTP or HTTP. I chose the FTP option, and downloaded the installation package in a few minutes. During the installation process, the product’s Help files are merged into the MSDN documentation. They are subsequently available via the IDE’s Help index. Sample code and walkthroughs are provided, as well as extensive documentation of the classes and methods. The ReadMe file gives complete instructions on how to add the charting components to the IDE’s toolbox. An evaluation edition is available from the VBChart download page and I encourage you to give it a try.
