From the Back Cover
Practical Visual InterDev 6 is a straight forward, no-nonsense approach to learning and using Visual InterDev. Begin by learning the development environment and how to use the Wizards, editors, and debuggers. Active Server Pages--the primary result of Visual InterDev development--is then be covered in detail. A part of this book is dedicated to database usage, since interaction with databases is a large part of "hard-core" Web applications. This includes coverage of data interaction, COM+, and ADO--Microsoft's direction for data access. Practical Visual InterDev focuses on teaching you to use Visual InterDev and provides quick access to answers and information.

The support web site is confusing. As of Jan 27,2000, the site listed appears to be evolving to a more useful site. If you substitute 'uvi6' for 'pvi6', the Using Visual Interdev 6 and Practical Visual Interdev 6 home page is brought up. This is because PVI6 is a re-released version of UVI6. From the home page you can get code downloads and an error listing that is for UVI6. I downloaded it and found that the errors were indeed taken care of. Isn't that great! The downloads were small zip files, so they didn't take long. As I said, good book.
As for the book's code, initially I couldn't find it at the URL stated in the book. I also did not get a reply from the author when I contacted him, nor was I able to find info about the book's code on the Author's home page. Only after I've seen one of the reviews on this site (Amazon.com) was I able to find the web page where supposedly I can get the code and the bonus chapters (by replacing pvi6 bu uvi6). I couldn't download anything yet since I couldn't register myself! There is a persisting error with the site that keeps me from registeriing. I have contacted the site webmaster and hopefully someone will get back to me.
Being someone who has purchased 3 books on VID and have checked many of the books in the market, I would recommend the book for beginners only. Advanced VID users won't benefit much from the book (at least not from the first 20 chapters of it).
Good Luck for everybody!
Overall, if you're thinking about this book primarily for database work the Visual Interdev, SKIP IT. However if you want a book that will give you general starter-up experience, GO FOR IT.
