Yes, it can, The normal procedure is to add a Setup and Deployment Project
to your solution, then use it to build a deployment package.
Of course, prospective users will have to have the .NET Framework installed
on the target PC's.
Check Setup and Deployment Project in the Visual Studio help.

Hi,

Are you talking about people running the program? Or viewing the code? If
it is the code then there is really no export because all the code is stored
in regular text files so they can be opened even with Notepad. Working with
forms is obviously a pain without the form editor but there are freeware
IDEs out there that can load those files. Here is a link to one:

I've never used it so I don't know how easy or practical it is to move
VB.Net solutions between that and VS.Net. Good luck! Ken.
