I tried to run a sample VB .Net application on a machine with XP home edition but it didn't work. What are the system requirements for a VB. Net application to run?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

No problems, it's Friday, and I'm just having fun.  It's never about the points with me--it's more about getting you the right answer.

Remember, though, if more than 1 answer provides you with information, you can split points among the contributors.
