Runtimes in Visual Basic 5.0

Question:
I read an article on another VB site dated 3/28/97 that stated that the executables created by VB 5.0 would still require a runtime dll (vbrun500.dll or something like that). Is this true?

Answer:
That's not quite right. Visual Basic 5.0 applications are really compiled which means that there is no DLL required to interpret the code formerly stored in the .EXE file. However, any DLLs that the executable needs, such as Data Access Object (DAO) DLLs or specific DLLs for controls will still have to be distributed with the executable.
