    how to create toal exe file

    I wrote a vb6 program many, many years ago and need it now.
    the file I wrote has no mistakes in it.
    I want to create a exe file with everything in it.By that I mean all active x files plus all the other file to make a program I can send to a client with everything in it.

    I have forgotten the method of doing this.
    IN ADVANCE, THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

    The word "Deployment comes to mind but as I remember this was quite combersome when I fist looked at it.
    Is there a more modern version or is that the best there is?

    Are you referring to an install (or setup) program?

    Do you mean a .msi installer file - or a self extracting .exe?

    I think you want to create your VB6 files in an exe application. So to convert your vb6 file into exe application, follow these steps.
    Go to File -> Make Project1.exe from menu bar. Click on Make Project1.exe.
    Browse the location where you want to save the file. Change the file name and click ok.
    Now you've created your executable file which can be used on any windows computer.
    You can change some other settings by clicking Options from the Dialog box. On clicking Options, the following dialog appears where you can change the project properties.

    The Package and Deployment wizard is what you are looking for.
    It will collect info about your project and add the required support files as well as allow you to add additional files if needed then it will build a setup that can be distributed to your end users.
