    Compile it to an exe and send it to someone...
    Note: That someone will need to have the Visual Basic Runtime Library DLL installed...

    Use the package and deployment wizard to create an install for the exe, dependent components will be registered as well [activeX, common dialog, etc].

    Hi,

    Thanks Richard. VB has an option in Run menu wherein it says 'Sart with full compile'. Here it doesn't stop with just the compilation but proceeds to run the same, however there is an option in File menu which says- 'Make .exe'....which can create the *.exe file.

    Regards,
    Geetha
