    VB.NET deploy requirement?

    I am newbie of VB.NET.

    In VB6, we need to deploy at least the VB6 runtime libraries and other
    associated DLL and OCX ... how's about the VB.NET ? what are the scenarios
    of deployment with different windows platforms .. WIN9X/ME/2K/XP .... ?

    Any reference information ?

    Thks

    James,
    There are TWO (2) situations:

    1) If the .NET Framework IS NOT already installed on the PC -
    a)the the Installation of your NEW app requires that the CLR (Common Language
    Runtime - essentially the .NET Framework) be installed first.

    b)Then the MANIFEST for your application can be copied (yes just copied)
    to the Target PC, and off it goes - not DLLs need to be "installed" in the
    sense that DLLs were installed with VB6.

    2) If the .NET Framework IS already installed on the target PC (and this
    will be more and more common, with new releases of the MS operating systems
    for instance), then proceed from 1b) above - simply copy the MANIFEST of
    the new application to an appropriate directory, and off it goes

    Also, be aware that you can NOT deploy to Win95 machine.

    James: Please do not crosspost to vb.dotnet.discussion and
    vb.dotnet.technical. The .technical group is for technical questions (like
    yours); the .discussion group is for non-technical discussion (rants and
    arguments, mostly). Thanks!
