Build options in VB2005

    When i Build .exe in VB2005, EDI creates quite a few files,
including .aplication, .exe.manifest, .pdb, .vhost.exe and .xml
do I really need all that, is there an option to just produce
an exe ?

Thanks in advance

.pdb = debug database when build from the Debug configuration mode

.vshost.exe is the executable that runs from the IDE

.xml is the XML documentation

I would ignore those files, since there isn't any option to stop the files from being created.

You dont need these files when deploying your application. If it is an exe application, only get the .exe file and your're ready to go.
