VB Executable & Excel Setup

P: n/a
Hi there,

I developed a simple VB executable, i.e. x.exe, that manipulates an Excel
File. I have the full Microsoft Office set in my development PC. My question
is: can this program x.exe run in a PC that does not have Excel installed? Is
there a re-distributable that can be included in a Setup Program?, or you
must have Excel in every PC where I would like this program to run?

Thanks to anybody who takes the time to provide any feedback.
Ivan

If you're using Excel automation to open and manipulate the Workbook then yes Excel must be
installed.

Paul,

Yes I do use automation. So I guess this answers my question.

Thank you very much for your time
