I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Compile it into an EXE...  

   File->Make Project.exe

And then you can run the exe on the development system... If you want to distribute it you need to run the Application Setup Wizard...


Cheers!

You need to use the Package & deployment wizard (Application Setup Wizard was the same tool but for VB5!!!). This wizard will collect all the files (.dll, .exe, .ocx, .hlp, ...) that you need to install on the user's computer.
