Hi,

The better way to do it is create a Setup Package (which contain all the required runtime files) from Package and Deployment Wizard (PDW). You can find the Wizard in Visual Basic Tools in Menu.

Hi!

My comment would only be applicable if you did not use any 3rd party ocx files and that you didn't call
and dll calls from dll files that fd o not come with the particular version of windows you're sending
your proggy over to.

Actually, your program does not need all those dll fils that are packaged together with it.

What you need to do to export your file is this:

Zip up all the ocx files that you've used, + your VB app exe file and the VB runtime file (Msvbvm60.dll).
 These dll and ocx files can be found in the C:\Windows\System folder or your system folder.

Make a self-extracting exe file that will unzip everything INTO THE SAME FOLDER, not seperate folders.  Your
app, upon extraction should run fine from there :)

Oh yes, include any database, text or help files in the self-extracting exe file if need be.

That's it!

Hi!

Well, those ocx files need not be registered.  So is the same for the runtime files.

Register only those 3rd party ocx/dll files. : )

So long as the runtime files are in the same folder as the app's exe file, it'll run : )  I suppose it'll check it's folder for the runtime files, then the system folder.

That's it!
