    Probably a stupid question...

    Hey everybody. I was wondering if there is a way to compile a visual basic program so that all of it's dependencies, including .dll's, .ocx's, etc are compiled directly into the EXE? I know that Visual C++ offers such a solution. Thanks a lot!

    There are third-party tools such as http://www.bit-arts.com/fusion which can incorporate all static objects and dynamically extract them as required from a single executable. This is not quite the same as simply static-linking as in C++ but can give you similar results with VB.
