    Absolutely not!
    I believe there is a version , which maybe free, whcih in some way, you can run in Windows 7. MS are still in the business of making money, and there are still many developing countries and newer organisations who are wiling to purchase the product

    Adding to the issue is this from https://www.infoq.com/news/2014/04/VB6-Crisis

    "After April 8, 2014, technical support for Windows XP and Windows XP Mode will no longer be available, including updates that help protect your PC. This means that if you continue to use Windows XP or use Windows XP Mode on a Windows 7 PC after support ends, your PC might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Therefore, to keep your Windows 7 PC secure after April 8, 2014, we recommend that you only use Windows XP Mode if your PC is disconnected from the Internet."
