Compiling VB.net programs Compiling VB.net programs dan (MIS) (OP) 11 Feb 19 17:46 If I create a program in VB.net (Express) what is necessary to compile it? Do I need to purchase the entire Visual Studio or is there some other way? Dan RE: Compiling VB.net programs jebenson (TechnicalUser) 13 Feb 19 21:58 Visual Studio builds your program every time you hit the Run button. To manually build, hit Ctrl+Shift+B, or go to the Build menu and select Build Solution. I used to rock and roll every night and party every day. Then it was every other day. Now I'm lucky if I can find 30 minutes a week in which to get funky. - Homer Simpson Arrrr, mateys! Ye needs ta be preparin' yerselves fer Talk Like a Pirate Day! RE: Compiling VB.net programs dan (MIS) (OP) 27 Mar 19 13:05 I probably wasn't clear enough. What I am interested in doing is to create an msi program to give a copy of the program to someone else without giving the source code. Dan RE: Compiling VB.net programs strongm (MIS) 27 Mar 19 13:35 You probably want to ask in forum1867: Visual Basic (Microsoft) VB.NET, as this forum is for VB Classic rather than VB.NET RE: Compiling VB.net programs Andrzejek (Programmer) 27 Mar 19 15:04 You may just try to give the exe of your program. If your program is named (for example) MyProgram, you probably start it in VB.NET by clicking on MyProgram.sln file. In the same location you should see a folder named MyProgram (the same name as your sln file), in it you should have another folder named bin, and in bin folder you should have Debug (and Release) folder. In this Debug (or Release) folder look for MyProgram.exe file. ---- Andy There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
