how to build standalone executable

P: n/a
Hello,
I've searched this newsgroup, but i can't find the answer.

We have some programs written in VB 6, and we've upgraded
to VB.NET recently.But I can't find a way to build native
win32 executable, which can run without .NET framework.

Thanks in advance,
Cecil.

Right, .NET applications need the .NET framework. It contains the libraries
you use, the JIT-compiler, managed execution including memory management and
so on.

As a matter of interest what's wrong with using the .NET Framework?
