Running Strictly from CD-ROM

Question:
My question was in regards to installation. I would like to know if it is possible to run a VB program right from a floppy or CDROM without installing or copying the associated files (DLL's) to the Windows System directory. I have two books on VB programming and neither of them go into that.

Answer:
It used to be that if all the files were in the same directory that the program was running in, it would work. However, now, with all the new settings that have to be in the registry, I'm not sure if it would work or not. You can try putting all the files in the same directory and see if it works. Most likely it won't since most of the files are essentially required to be in the Windows/System directory.
