After I have finished the programme, I want to make an exe file by choosing "make Project1.exe" where Project 1 is the file name. Everything is find. However, when I try to run the exe file in a computer which does not have VB, I can't run it. There is a messge saying that "can't find MSVBVB50.DLL". So, what is going on? how should I complie the program so that other computers(those without VB) can run the program?

Dear michaeleu
There is nothing wrong in making the .exe that way. But to run your application(project1.exe) in some other which doesn't have VB, You have to create a setup program by using the application setup wizard. Then you run the setup program which is created by the wizard. The wizard takes care of the dependency. So you will not get that error.
