VB 6.0 Runtime DLLs not found

I have just finished writing a program, in VB 6.0, that reads a user's Win95 Registry value and outputs the key value to a file on a server.  I want to run the .exe off of the server, but when I copy the .exe file and the bootstrap runtime files to a directory on the server, and try to run it from a user's computer, I get an error (as opposed to it working on my computer, which has the VB core library files).  I don't want to have to copy the runtime files to everyone's computer before being able to run my program successfully.  Is there a way to tell my program where to find the runtime libraries (on the server)?  Or, can anyone suggest any other solutions?

The program should look in the app.directory for the files. Trick is that has to be the *default* directory. In DOS batch I'd change to the dir with a CD statement. In windows the "Start in" directory in the icon's property page should be where the .DLL's are kept.

You need to copy the runtime to each computer :(
Otherwise, write your application in C or Delphi.

To find wich DLL are used, you can use the Wise (www.glbs.com) setup creation.

If you want, I have other setup in shareware
