Exes wont work without install

Hi Experts,

I am currently using vb.net 2002

Is there a way that I can get my exe to run without installing it like was possible with vb6?

I usually like the fact programs need to be installed, but there are situations where it would be easier without the install.

Cheers,

Tom

I was under the impression that a VB.NET exe will run without the need for an install routine, unless it references some older dlls that need to be registered using regsvr32.
Have you tried just running the exe?

Are you getting any error?

Best Regards,

David

a VB.NET exe needs the .NET framework installed :)

providing that is installed ... and you are not using com style (or gac required) references ... then x-copy deployment is supported.
