    Re: VB Error

    To execute an application in windows, this has to be installed using an installation package
    In this package are all the neccesary data files, reports, libraries and ActiveX controls so the application can be executed

    Give more details about your problem
    -did you develop the application?

    Re: VB Error

    There is no other way to install manual whatever it needs ? I have a VB application on a computer and we want to install it to another...but we dont have an installation package only the files from the program files.
    I have the application installed on a computer i can transfer like a "manual" the files that i need?

    Re: VB Error

    You could do it manually, but it will be a long and tedious work...
    ...use some programs that display the libraries used by the working app
    ...copy each file or files
    ...register the dlls and the ocxs in the new pc
    ...test
    ...etc
    ...and if it is a protected application then it would not work

    Why don't you want to make a decent installer?

    See post #3
    He doesn't has the installation package, he wants to copy an app from one pc to another

    Re: VB Error

    If memory serves when an ocx or dll is missing the error message tells you the name of the missing file so it is a matter of reading the message, locating that file, copy it to the target system, register if needed and repeat for each file that it complains about with luck it is only one file but could be 10 or more.

    As a general rule you just should not do this. Somehow that program was installed on the pc it is on now which means there should be an installer that installs it properly and that is what should be used to install it on the target pc rather than a copy paste

    Re: VB Error

    Also...
    The problem get bigger when there are dependencies...
    this is when a dll or an ocx need others files to work
