please can you tell how to compile the project ... i cant figure it out  :$
i See the file | make option but it is disabled ...  perhaps it will be enabled after compilation.

There is one more point i want to ask ... will the exe run on system without vb installed on it?

Do you have the Student version of VB6? You can't compile exe's with that...
