Hi OBill,

Could you be a little more specific?...do you have SOURCE code for some VB applications that you want to compile into working EXEs?  If so, what version visual basic were they designed for?
OBillAuthor Commented:
I don't have a source code, but I would like to write one which would backup certain files to my external hard drive every time I run it.

Ok...go install VB.Net 2008 Express.  That will let you develop and compile VB.Net applications:
