I wanted to inform all VB programmers about run-time files in order not to "explode" distributable file with 1.3 MB instead of 650Kb.

Original Author: Aki

Code

The small article:


Run-time files are files your application must have in order
to work correctly after installation. These files are needed by all Visual Basic
applications.


The following are the run-time files for Visual Basic
projects:


Msvbvm60.dll


Stdole2.tlb


Oleaut32.dll


Olepro32.dll


Comcat.dll


Asyncfilt.dll


Ctl3d32.dll


The installation program assumes that any computer capable
of performing an Internet download already has all of these files except for
Msvbvm60.dll. Therefore this is the only run-time file!

Copied from MSDN Library.


One more tip...


If you also want to have professional installation package I
recommend to use NSIS http://nsis.sourceforge.net/ and it's free. You will also
need an editor and this you can get if you click on download page. I use HM NIS
Edit http://hmne.sourceforge.net/ and it's also free. I hope this will help
someone.
