I am doing legacy software programming in Visual Basic 6.0.

How do I unit test it?

Does your IDE support unit testing? If not, you can always create your own unit test framework in any programming language by creating assertion methods Assert.AreEqual, Assert.IsTrue, etc. and designing a custom build which runs them on every build.

You can also use one of the multiple unit test frameworks for Visual Basic 6.

Use one of the existing unit testing frameworks. Don't bother writing your own. –  Bernard Feb 16 '12 at 0:38

Googling for "visual basic unit test" lead me to the wikipedia page on unit testing in all kinds of languages. Somewhere down the list is a table with tools for unit testing VB6 code. That should get you started.
