Visual Basic 2005 lets you publish the program in an installation program. Is there a way to publish the program, so that it can be saved/copied to disk to run on another computer, without installing?

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

Why would you not want to run the install program? The install program makes sure all the supporting components are available.

    The answer is "It depends, but probably not". The reason, as PennPmgr (did I get that right?) pointed out, is that any program created by VB needs certain files in addition to the .exe on the system in order to run. Depending on your application, there may be fewer or more supporting files required, but there are some that are ALWAYS required, and they need to be the correct versions. If you just want to give your app to another VB2k5 developer, you're all set. If you want to distribute it to non-developers, it's more problematic and probably not a good idea. If you want to see what files we're talking about, run the wizard and see which ones it pulls in for your app.
