I am interested in running a VB.NET application on a touch screen computing device that runs Windows XP. I am new to this, so what I am wondering is how I can make a stand-alone application that runs without the .NET framework installed. I want the app to run as an executable without the framework.
I am confused by all the different versions (VB.NET, VB 6.0, Visual Studio, Standard versions, Professional versions, etc.) and would like to know which version I should purchase for my stated purpose.
my intuition tells me that I have to buy the more expensive Professional version to make an app that runs without the framework installed?
Thanks for any advice,
