 QUICK QUESTION:vb question/buying decision

------- Hello. I am very new to Visual Basic, in fact I have never
done anything in vb before. I am considering using it to
do a quick (small) windows project. All that is involved is
making a query (OLE) to a server and writing the results
to a file. Pretty straighforward stuff, eh? Here are the
- must be able to accept a web form (post or get)
- must NOT open any windows on the console

Is vb capable of accepting form data, and if so, what
is the mechanism?

Also, from what I have seen, vb is based on forms which
occupy windows. Is it possible to write a vb program that
will not open any windows?

Another question that I have... how fast do vb programs
LOAD? I am not concerned with running fast, as obviously
my application does not require high speed computing power.
But the possibility for it to be loaded over and over is high,
so executable size (with runtime libs) is essential.

I have yet to make any decisions as to buying vb, so any
help will be much appreciated.
