VB program to run on a server without VB installed...

HI,

I have an exe (VB 6 program) running ok on my development machine.
I need to move it to the server but that server doesnt have VB installed and it is not an option.
My question is (maybe it is silly):
Do I have to install a runtime version (where do I get it) or there is something that reads my program and crate a list of everything that must be installed on the server so my program works fine?

Thanks,

ceta

There is the P&D (Package and Deployment) tool. Run it and it will create an installation package for you. Then you can install it on other machines. The P&D can be found at:

Start > Programs > Microsoft Visual Studio 6 > Microsoft Visual Stuido 6 Tools > Package & Deployment Wizard

With that said, there are better installers out there, one of them is Innosetup that can be downloaded for free here: http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php

You MUST install the VB 6 Support libraries on the Server.  That is not an option.  You do NOT need to install the complete VB development environment though.  Use the Package and Deployment wizard in Visual Studio, to build the required Setup program that will install your program and all of the necessary support dlls on the Server.  That should be all that is needed.
