I have a simple application with one form that performs some simple tasks, but If I add the attached code my app doesn´t run in other machines without visual studio.
Namespace My

    ' The following events are available for MyApplication:
    ' 
    ' Startup: Raised when the application starts, before the startup form is created.
    ' Shutdown: Raised after all application forms are closed.  This event is not raised if the application terminates abnormally.
    ' UnhandledException: Raised if the application encounters an unhandled exception.
    ' StartupNextInstance: Raised when launching a single-instance application and the application is already active. 
    ' NetworkAvailabilityChanged: Raised when the network connection is connected or disconnected.
    Partial Friend Class MyApplication

        Private Sub MyApplication_Startup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.VisualBasic.ApplicationServices.StartupEventArgs) Handles Me.Startup
            If e.CommandLine(0).ToLower = "/silent" Then

                ' ... run your code from here ...

                e.Cancel = True ' Suppress the default Form and Exit the Application
            End If

            ' Otherwise the App starts as Normal with the Form specified as the "Startup object" in Project --> Properties!

        End Sub

    End Class


End Namespace

Shouldn't this line
Private Sub MyApplication_Startup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.VisualBasic.ApplicationServices.StartupEventArgs) Handles Me.Startup

Open in new window

be
Private Sub MyApplication_Startup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As StartupEventArgs)Handles Me.Startup

Open in new window

Use the "View Application Events" button in Project --> Properties and then change the two dropdowns across the top of the code editor to place the method stub for you.

Not sure why you'd be getting an error.  Specifically, what does the error say and what line does it point to?

I have updated the operating system of the other computer then the application Worked (I believe are .net framework patches).

What components of XP OS allow the execution of this code?
