Convert VB.NET project files to an exe format

P: n/a
Hi,

i am developing an windows based VB.NET application.
I want to convert this project to an .exe format so that i
can run this application on any system. I have no clue as
how to do it, as it is done in VB.6.

Any suggestion regarding this would be highly appreciated.

thanks,

windows projects in .NET already compile to an EXE format... should work on
any system that has Microsoft .NET framework installed.

Are you asking if you can create a .NET app that doesn't require the
framework?

TTBOMK, that is not possible.

Sriram,
In addition to Nick Malik's questions:

Do you mean compile a project?

Within VS.NET 2002 & VS.NET 2003, you use "Build - Build Solution" which
will create an assembly (exe or dll) based on the project type in the
project's output folder, normally the root folder of the project /bin.

For example for "My Project" the executable will be "My Project/Bin/My
Project.exe" after using "Build - Build Solution"

Hope this helps
