VB 2005Deploying  Mini Application

Posted on 2006-11-10
Last Modified: 2010-04-23

I have a very small piece of code that I want to distribute.

Is there an easy way to do this.

It consists of one windows form with 30 lines of code.

Is there a simple way of users using this without going through the massive task of
deploying a visual studio 2005 app.

Hi murbro,
If its not connected to a database or anything like that you may be able to just give them the exe from the debug folder of your project.

How would you do that?

Sorry, but I am very new to Visual Studio and am a VBA coder.

There is no database. It literally is a single windows form with code behind it

The exe is in the bin folder in your project directory.

Thanks Chaosian. Would the user simply open that? How would it be presented to a user?

Yes, the user could open the exe and it would display just as it would if you ran it from the IDE.
