Thread: .Net Framework

  1. #1

    .Net Framework


    I have .Net framework installed on XP pro.
    I don't have an IDE such as Visual Studio.Net.
    I wrote a samll vb.net program and tried compile as:
    vbc test.vb

    I got several errors that includes 'Type is not difined: system.Windows.Forms.form
    '

    I thought I could create .Net application with just .Net Framework.
    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    RBS: You must specify the assemblies your project requires using the /r (or
    /references) switch of the VB compiler. For more information, see

    As an alternative, you might want to check out

    http://www.icsharpcode.net

    They have a FREE IDE, written in C#, that can also build VB.NET applications.
    The code is FREE, both as an executable, and as the full source code. It
    is still rather rough around the edges (Version 0.94 is currently in release),
    so it is not yet "ready for prime time", but the PRICE is right.

    You might also want to check out "Web Matrix", from Microsoft, which is also
    FREE, and is limited to ASP.NET (but that uses eitehr C# or VB.NET as the
    coding platform).
