VB6 Program Install on an IPad, possible?

I have just created a Project in VB6 and am at the point where I now intend to distribute it among a half dozen individuals for their analysis prior to the actual distribution to others. The problem, in short, is that two of these individuals for the initial Debugging only have IPads. Is it even possible for an Installation of a Program, created in VB6, to occur on an IPad? If so, how would I even go about it? Thanks in advance.

No. If they had a real Mac, you could run VMware or Parallels with a virtual Windows.
For cross-platform apps, you should program in something like Electron.

Thanks cactusdata, that's pretty much what I figured, but I guess I just wanted someone else to confirm. There is a VB Compiler for iPad and iPhone, but I don't know if I even want to get into that at this time. Thanks again.

Even if/as there is a compiler for Mac/iPad, you will probably need a physical Mac to compile the application.

VB6 creates programs for Windows-based PCs. Ipads are a whole different and are in no way compatible.

Electronjs is not native. Builds are slow and unnecessarily large sizes.
