VBD file extension - Microsoft Visual Basic ActiveX document

What is vbd file? How to open vbd files?

File type specification:

Document file type icon Document file type

vbd file icon: vbd filetype icon

The vbd file extension is associated with Microsoft Visual Basic and used for ActiveX documents which are primarily used for Web programming.

Put simply, an ActiveX document is a Visual Basic application that is "published" to a Web site and then downloaded and executed in the user’s Web browser. An ActiveX document is not a Web page in the usual sense, as it involves no HTML or script.

To the end user however, this distinction is moot, as all they really care about is what they see and do on-screen. They usually do not give a tinker’s damn about the underlying technology. If you have worked with Visual Basic to any extent, you know its incredible power, and the ability to deploy full-fledged Visual Basic programs as Web-based applications should be a tempting inducement.
