I assume you mean without any .DLL files or somesuch. There a some third party utilities out there that will do that, but all have limits of one form or another.

BTW: Turn your CAPS LOCK off.

There is a nice compiler included in the PRO edition. You probably won't find anybody to give you a compiler for free, but check

Good luck.

Do You Know the 4 Main Threat Actor Types?

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.

The answer to this is that you need the (more expensive) version of VB which makes a .exe for you.  

Writing a VB compiler of your own is going to be near on impossible, I'm afraid.  If you are interested in compiler design then you'll need to learn alot of computing!  You'd have to start off with a very simple compiler, VB is a very complex language, your talking Cone Head land.
You'd need to work in a lower level language than VB, c/c++ or assembler.  If your interested, then these languages are well worth investigating, but much study is neede to get to compiler writing level.

I say this but maybe someone will have some other suggestion or work around.

If you don't care about .DLLs, OCX's etc, the program you're looking for is VB5 Pro. It'll give you a SETUP.EXE that will install on any Win95/NT system and you're program will run like any other windows app. Your program *will* compile to a .EXE file and the installer will place it, and any other related files on the system. The Setup Wizard does all of the work for you.
