Is there a way to make your project compile without the use of the .NET Framework, etc, so it is just a stripped down, very basic app?

Well just so it compiles like VB6 did.

(Using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Enterprise Architect)

Regards.

In short, No. When you are using a .Net language, you commit to the .Net FrameWork!

Sorry... The framework is Microsoft's way of saying "All your programs are belong to .NET"

since EVERYTHING in .NET is an Object, and thus Inherits from System.Object, the ENTIRE .NET Framework of a classes is ultimately involved, even in what appears to be a 'very basic app'.

Well thanks for your help.

I have established that I need to go back to VB6 to work on my app.

Another question then: Can I have both versions of VB installed at once, without any conflicts?

You will have to distribute VB run time as well!

Ok well great. I think I've got everything I needed to know now. Never mind about the VB run time, all the PCs at work have it installed.

Thanks a lot,
