Do we answer questions which require workarounds for illegal software? Example here (see comments on the answer by csauve). On one of the questions, the poster specifically states that he's using "Visual Basic 6 Portable" which is an illegal copy of VS. He specifically notes that an answer doesn't work for him because he's using an illegal version of the software. Similar to the following two questions:
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There is no sense in worrying about those details while answering questions on StackOverflow; we're not Intellectual Property Police.
If you feel his question cannot be reasonably answered due to the original poster's specific circumstances: vote to close as Too Localized.
