I write large programs in VB4 and number of people would like to purchase them if I could make them run in the Mac environnement.

Is there anyone that could tell me how to do it (if it can be done) either with a compiler, a cross-compiler, an interface I could install in my PC (whether hardware or software), or by any other means ???

Thanks for the help and advise.

AFAIK, no. You'd have to port your code the old fashioned way - rewrite it. Had you said C, C++, or Pascal, I'd say there'd be a fair chance that you could go a long way with Metrowerk's Code Warrior. If you knew Java, that would probably be the easiest re-write IMHO.

I beleive that Webster is right about their not being any way to run VB apps on the Macintosh natively. But...while this is by no means a perfect solution, Citrix http://www.citrix.com makes an application server solution that might fit your needs.
