A stand alone without msvbvm60.dll

Dear Experts,
It seems all the visual basic stand alone files need msvbvm60.dll to run. But for some reasons I need to have a real STAND ALONE file. How can I make such a file?

Please help me.
Thanks.

i don't think you can. VB programs always need VB6 runtimes... if you need stand alone programs, you may want to start learning C.
VB s**ks sometimes doesn't it..

Try:

VB Power Wrap : http://www.moonlight-software.com/vbpower-trial.exe

This app will take your exe file, and attach all dependencies into it.

After this exe is executed on other computer, it will install this dependancy onto that computer if it doesn't find it.

Note that this is only a trial version, but it worked fine for me.

Actually there is a way for making visual basic EXEs without the runtime dlls. They're ActiveX that you can execute directly. Off course you won't have a forms graphical interface unless you code it or use the specific dlls.

To do this you should take your code into a new Project of the ActiveX EXE type. It allows you to have class modules and standard modules with a Main() method.

But, what exactly does your stand alone vb do?

msvbvm60.dll contains the code for most of the functions you call from VB.
