I have created a couple of small apps (VB4) on my 486/66 that work fine.
However, when I put them onto a friends Pentium, I am prompted for a file
VB40032.DLL. So I downloaded this file from the net, and now when I double
click on the icon, nothing happens. Nothing at all. Can anyone tell me where
the problem is?

You must put VB40032.DLL in the Windows\System directory of the computer that you want to run your program on.

I suggest that you use the Visual Basic Setup Kit that comes with Visual Basic to create a setup program for your application(s) so all required files will be installed with your apps. There should be a link to run the Setup Kit in the Visual Basic group in the Start Menu.
