Deploying VB6 apps remotely

Hi everyone,

i would like to run a vb app remotely from a client machine. the app
and all the necessary dll's, drivers etc are installed on a server
machine. the client does not have any vb files at all.

we would like to avoid installing any vb files client side, just run
the whole thing off the server. we currently do something similar
with Citrix but i was wondering if vb can do it on its own.

is this possible?

if so, what do i need to do to get my app to run.

app is vb6/oracle 9.2i

regards

I can think of a few different options that I would look into to see
if they are vialble solutions:
1) Moving the program into a multi-tiered application, making the
presentation browser-based and using ASP. This would reduce your need
on for Citrix.
2) Use DCOM or MTS. This would require some client files to be
installed but could keep all the business logic on a remote server.
3) An alternative to Citrix would be Microsoft's Terminal Server
