Default question about .exe file

When I convert a project to .exe in vb6, is it possible to load the file onto another computer? The reason why I ask is because I am getting a "Component 'COMDLG32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

Hi there..

You don't directly copy the exe, you need an installer to make it work and it will contain all the necesary files to make it work.

Hey there gbianchi!
If you don't mind me asking, where do I find this installer at?

VB6 comes with the package and deployment wizard but it is a bit inaduquate now-a-days. Search MS for windows installer 1.1 vb6 or search the web for Inno.



Good Luck

package and deployment wizard will be enough if you are starting. And since you are asking these, will be more than enough.

G,

Unfortunatually the PDW is not adaquate enough if OP is installing on Vista or higher. The setup package will more than likely fail if installing on this OS...

Ok, and you want to install this anywhere? Or in a specific system?
