Statically link DLLs (or references in general)

Is it possible, in VB.NET 2003 Standard, to link referenced DLLs statically,
so I only have to distribute a single executable?

All you can do is linking class libraries into the EXE files using tools
like ILMerge or ILLink, but this makes sense only in rare cases, and the
application will still rely on the .NET Framework.

Hi, After compiled and linked with a third-party C++ library ACE in FreeBSD 5.4, apart from copying my program over, I found that I also need to copy the libace..so.5.4.1 file to the target system as well. I found somewhere in the internet mentioned that I can compile the program static link with ACE, but it didn't describe the detail of how to do that in Unix.

Hi I'm trying to build a Python package that I can use on different Linux setups, for this purpose it would be nice to weld external dependencies (libraries) into Python itself. So far I've succeeded in getting Tcl/Tk statically linked in, with the help of Modules/Setup.local, but the same procedure for ncurses and readline results in python being dynamically linked with these two libraries?? That is, there are no longer any readline.so...

The one request I have for the .net framework, or actually the compilers, would be to statically link assemblies at compile time. This way you can compile your application into one executable instead of an executable and 100 other third party referenced assemblies. Delphi can do this, and it is a very nice feature. It makes distributing your application much easier. -- Jeff Langston Director of Product Development Cashless Systems, Inc.

Hi, is there a way to do this? All you have is the lib and the dll file (so no source code). Is it possible to link them physically into the exe we're creating in a VS.NET 2003 unmanaged C++ solution's exe?

Hello, We re-compiled a COM VC++6.0 project using Visual Studio .NET 2003 (unmanaged code). Next, we copied the DLL to a Windows 2003 Server computer. When we tried to register the COM object, the registration failed (the VC++6.0 version registered OK). We installed Visual Studio .NET 2003 on the Windows 2003 Sever, and the COM object successfully registered (we did not re-compile the COM object).

Good day folks, I'm wondering what is the easiest way to link DLLs to a project with VB.NET. I've been building an app here (framework 1.1). In my project, I added a few references to files I've copied in my bin folder. The Copy Local property for the DLLs is set to true. Here, everything works fine.

I'm starting work on what will eventually be a very, very LARGE project. A lot of the project involves taking C/C++ class libraries and wrapping them with managed C++. I'd like to minimize the number of DLLs I have (because I'd like to keep my sanity). Is there some way to compile a managed C++ DLL into a C# DLL, or am I just stuck consolidating the managed C++ into a single DLL? Lee

Hello, I have Visual C++ 2005 on XP-Pro. I try do do a "quick and dirty" program to run on a Win2000 computer. The only system call is a "printf()". When I try to run this program on the other computer, there is an error message saying "this program can not be started on this computer". I suppose, this is due to the missing system DLLs msvcr80.dll, msvcm80.dll and msvcp80.dll. How can I link the equivalent libs statically to my program?
