    HiNithiyanantham,

     


    Welcome to MSDN forums!


     

     

    How to create an exe file in vb.net 2005.


     

     

    Just create a new Windows Forms Application project and then Build it to generate an .exe file, or publish it as installer file (Setup.exe).

     

     

     

    i need to run this exe file into another system. is this possible. I created an exe file and shortcut also. but now i want to run that exe file with database into another client system. In client system, it does not installed .NET2005 and SQL 2000.

     

     

     

    If you want to make a .NET application and run it at another machine, it's dependent upon .NET Framework being installed on the target machine. Because .NET Framework supplies the running environment for the .NET application.

     

    If you want to make an application that is not dependent upon .NET Framework, you should avoid using managed languages. Instead using VC++ or Visual Basic 6.0 (that is unmanaged languages).

    Visual Studio ClickOnce Deployment can publish your application with .Net Framework and some files (e.g. dll, database file, Text file, etc.) to target machines
