I know I need VB40032.DLL to run my visual basic programs,
but I was wondering if it is possible to make a VB executable
that does not require VB40032.dll.
VB40032.DLL is the runtime interpreter for Visual Basic. Until now, Microsoft has not built a compiler that would eliminate the use of this DLL file. However, PowerBasic has a compiler for Visual Basic that eliminates the need for VB40032.DLL. In addition, rumor/news release has it that Visual Basic 5.0 will be including a native code compiler to eliminate the need for VB40032.DLL. The compiler will also be able to build OCXs (ActiveX controls), which have slightly different build requirements.
