Hi, using the standard Package & Deployment Wizard under Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Tools. This should be ok. and of course you need the sql server 7.0 setup disk.

Hi!

You could use the Application Setup Wizard that comes with your version of VB.

Another method would be to zip all the ocx, dll files that your app used together with the Visual Basic runtime file (Msvbvm50.dll or Msvbvm60.dll) and make sure that it unzips all to 1 folder.

That's it!

you cannot include sql server 7.0 into your vb6 program as well due to the licence issue and other. What you can do is to include the database file as well as log life. If i am not mistaken the the extension for database file is mdf and for log is ldf. Include both during the deployment.

Hi,

The sql 7.0 is in another server. The vb program will be installed into user's pc. I'm using the odbc connection.

My question is "Do I have to include the sql 7.0"? Or I just created a odbc connection string in user'c pc that point to correct sql server?

Please give a comment as I don't the answer.


Thanks.

Hi glass_cookie,

I couldn't found the "Application Setup Wizard that comes with your version of VB" in Ms Studio 6.0 menu.

Follwing are those items in Ms Studio 6.0 menu :

1. Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0
2. Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0
3. Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Tools

Do I have to reinstall the VB6 in order to use the "Application setup wizard"?

Please comment.

Thanks

Hmmm... I did this:

Start > Programs > Microsoft Visual Basic > Application setup wizard

That's how I got there.  From there, just follow the instructions.  There's only 1 little problem.  Sometimes, that packager may make some mistake and fail you (though it usually doesn't happen).  I came across some questions where it failed.

Another way would be t zip everything up and load everything onto a folder.  But I've got no idea about the "licence issue" thing.

That's it!

DONT reinstall.  The package thing should installed together with your VB6.

That's it!
