Creating a Standalone .exe

Creating a Standalone .exe

Post by Q2hhcGxhaW » Sun, 29 Oct 2006 02:53:01


Visual Studio 2005 Express Edition (Visual Basic). I am new to this product
and this forum. I have created a form and the class module behind it. The
form works fine. However, I simply want to create a standalone .exe file
from this. I do not want to create an installation package. When I choose
to "Publish" this project it creates tons of files intended I think to be
installed on a system from a CD. Again, all I want to do is create a single,
stand-alone .exe file from this project. How do I do that? Thanks.

P.S. I was chastised for posting to the wrong forum yesterday. I hope that
I have now chosen the right one.

Creating a Standalone .exe

I found what I think is an answer. I went to the place where Visual Studio
keeps all my project's "build" stuff (My Documents\Visual Studio
2005\Projects\Update Grading\Update Grading\bin\Release) and grabbed "Update
Grading.exe" (my project name is "Update Grading'). It seems to work fine as
a standalone .exe.

If there are any better suggestions, I would appreciate them.

That should work fine, as long as you have the .Net 2.0 Framework installed
on the computer. If you send the .exe to someone else that doesn't have the
framework installed, the application won't run. And there's no way around
that I'm afraid.
