compiling for mutliply cpu

I have been asked the question if I can compile my vb.net programs to use more than 1 cpu.
I have looked at the choices that I have when compiling a program and I don't see anything about the number of cpu.

I don't want to write a multithreaded program just want a program that can see more than 1 cpu and use it.

Then you are stuck.  One thread runs on one cpu.  (Else how does it know where it is in the code?)
No, You can not automatically compile your VB.Net program to you more than 1 CPU.

There is no such an option in the Visual Studio or any other IDE.

This is why more than 95% of applications you see on the market are not multithreaded.
