I am writing a program in vb6 which will be used by many users in my company.

I run package and deployment wizard and it generates a setup file which includes some dll, ocx and MDAC
(my program use adodc to connect to access db, datagrid, DTPicker, RichTextBox, etc)

But I don't want to install the software into all the users' machines on my own...

Are there any method so that my program can run as standalone exe program?

Thanks

Not really. The files are essential to run the VB program
You could avoid installing it on each PC by putting it on a  thin client server like Citrix Winframe.

Not sure what your question is.  Microsoft Package & Deployement Wizard writes many files as part of it's install, one of which is setup.exe.  To my knowledge, unless you use someting like Wise for Windows Installer / Install Master, which creates a .msi file, there's no way to deploy as just one file.

I use Wise and have had much greater success than M$ Package & Deployment Wizard.

Hope this helps.
