How to convert a .NET project into a dll ?

Hi everyone,

I want to convert a VB.NET project into a dll. How it can be done ? What is
the procedure to do this ?
All the responses are welcome.

I saw a third party tool that would take IL and compile it down to COM, but I
do not have the link. You cannot do this using the tools for .NET, however. I
do know Remote Soft (www.remotesoft.com) has a tool that allows you to deploy
with a limited .NET install. It still requires SOME .NET, but makes the
install much smaller.

I already knew this way. Here I have to make a library class in the starting
and then proceed. My question was if I have made a project and then want to
convert that into a dll then can it be done ?

Do you have a problem on a specific point ?

If you are using VS.NET you'll have to change the project type ("project
properties", "output type", may vary as this is a tranlsation from French)

IMO, it's also likely you'll have anyway to change some code (startup code
an even more likely the way you expose functionnalities).

Sorry for the poor help. Tour best bet is likely to give it a try and come
back for specific problem.
