Compiling components in VB5.0

Is there a way to compile the MSVBVM50.dll file into my application so that I don't have to write an install file to move it to the correct place?

Similarly, can I compile the winsock control component (MSWINSCK.OCX) in too so that I don't have to dump in windows/system or winnt/system32 during an install?

Thanks

Ernest

There are no way to include all the OCX, DLL ... needed by your application.

The only thing you could eventually do is compile your application to native code.

You go to the menu Project\Project Properties
in the tab Compile, Select compile to native code.
Once it is done, you can even set some items to optimize you app.
