Distributable Files for Word Automation?

Does anyone know which files need to be distributed with a VB.NET
application to enable Word automation on a m/c that does not have Word
installed? Is this even possible / permissible? I currently get the error
"File or assembly name Microsoft.office.interop.word or one of its
dependencies was not found".

TIA

Not possible. They require that the word version matching your library
you are coding against be on their computer.

Charles, your target machine does need to have Word installed if you wish to
use Word automation. All that VB.NET provides are the object definitions
that Word uses so your compiler can compile the program but to instanciate
and manipulte Word objects you need to have Word installed to get access to
the objects implementation programs.
