Building project

P: n/a
Hi ....

I have built a simple invoicing / quoting system.
The problem i am having is that not all my computers run the dotnet
framework.
How can i compile the program so that it will install on a computer without
dotnet?

Your program compiled in dotnet will not run without the dotnet framework
just as a vb6 program wouldn't run without the vb6 runtimes. The framework
is free to download and its only some 23 MB of download size which shouldn't
be a big issue anyway. In future, MS will be shipping OSes with the
framework pre-installed just as is the case with Windows Server 2003 and so
that shouldn't be an issue anymore.

hope that helps..
Imran.

You cannot (without expensive 3rd party tools that I would not use).

Thanks for the response.

One more question.
Is there a simple .net framework setup (or something) that i can use to run
the app on other machines or do i need to install the entire vs.net on all
the machines???

you don't need to install the entire vs .net to run your apps. you just need
the framework.

select 1.0 or 1.1 depending on whether you have 2002 or 2003.
