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?

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.
