Sorry I misunderstood.

There is something called "Project Semplice" which purports to be a
VB6 compatible compiler targeting the JVM.

The blogs are from last year (2006) and it looks like there had
already been a lot of work put into it. According to Herbert, the
authors were hoping to have it available for JavaOne 2007, but that
has past and I haven't (yet) been able to find it available for
download anywhere.

You might try emailing the authors (see Herbert's blog). Other than
this project I think you're out of luck.
