Deploying VB Apps
Posted on 2002-06-27
I have a general question about deploying VB apps to run on a variety of platforms.
I gather this is a complex issue, yes? no?
I ran into a problem deploying a VB app built on my XP Pro machine, when I tried putting it onto a Windows 98. My installation package included a DLL that would not run on Windows 98. The specific DLL is the Microsoft C Runtime Library (msvcrt.dll). I assume this is just one example of the general problem of managing VB apps to run on a variety of platforms.
I assume there must be some well-known basic approach to managing this problem. Can anyone provide the ABCs for how to do this?
As always, any information will be gratefully appreciated.
