I have developed an application on the 95 operating system and would like it to run on an NT machine.  What do I need to do the make the application run on an NT machine.  Do I have to compile it on an NT machine?

Thanks,

No, it is compatible except if you use specific dll of Windows 95.
The VB5 Compiler generate 32 bits applications wich runs under Win 95, Win 98, Win NT.

Some APIs or DLL are not installed on other computers (DirectX under NT, some network DLL installed under NT but nor installed under Win 95).
