I am very new to this and want to know if I develop a database application using Visual Basic 2005, can my application be loaded onto any computer and used or will the user have to have VB 2005 or some particular database software installed on their computer to use it?

Software/Hardware used:
Visual Basic 2005 or newer

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Definitely not on “any computer”, but I suppose you mean “on any computer running a Microsoft Windows operating system”.

The program itself will <b>probably </b>be able to run on any computer having the appropriate .NET framework installed, but depending on the database you decide to use, some database software <b>could</b> need to be installed on the machine to be able to access the data from your application.

yes , the system should have .net framework installed and if your application using crystal report then this is also needed to be installed , you can get this two while you are creating the setup for your project …

    You can write you vb program and it should run on most Windows computers, but when you compile your program you will need to make sure you've added all the nameoffile.dll and nameoffile.OCX and any other necessary file your program uses to run into the compile so they too are on all the computers you want to run your applications on, including any font files as well that you use but are not your normally installed fonts they too will have to be included in your install program.
