Iīm using MS Visual Basic Studio 2005 Express Edition, and now I want to know how to make executable files of your .vb files.
I know that Windows can execute .vb files with MS Scripting Host but .Exe is much better I think.
So can u help me?
The exe file will be in the Debug folder, but you may have other dlls in your program that would require to be distributed with your app in which case, using a deployment setup program would be beneficial to you.
To create your setup package (the program that installs your app in client machines), do the following:
Add new project > Setup and Deployment > Setup Wizard to your Solution.
Follow the steps and add any extra dlls that you may need (if it hasn't already added them for you), and any other files/folders....
Then right click on the setup project and select Build.
The setup will be yourproject.msi, setup.exe, setiup.ini (something like that)
located in the release folder.
Just zip those three files up and upload to your website or distribute from disks/other media.
