Running inside VB5 or in EXE?
Posted on 1998-06-25
I want to know if my program is running inside the VB5 development environment or in compiled EXE.
I can not use the App.EXEName because it will return the same name if the application name and the EXE name is the same.
Also, I succeeded to detect this in VB4 using API GetModuleFileName and GetWindowWord, but in VB5 they always report that the project is running in EXE. I think this is probably because VB5 compiles and runs the project as a true compiled application which is not the case in VB4 (I think).
I also tried to check the 'Compile to p-code' in the compile options, but got the same results.
