I have framework 3.0 installed on my PC. I would like to know how to run a 'hello world' type application written in notepad, rather than using visual studio. Can anyone provide me with an example?

    Accepted Solution

    You will have to compile the program using the command line compiler vbc.exe
    You should find this compiler in your .Net 3.0 framework folder or the SDK folder.
