Creating Win 3.1 Applications

Question:
Should I upgrade to VB5.0. I currently am using VB4.0 to make a simple program to run on win3.1 and win95. I want to distribute this program on diskette and use as few as possible. Currently I have to use 2 disk, mainly for all the dll's that go with it. (is there a way to reduce to one disk?) My main question is should I upgrade.

Answer:
If you're writing programs for Windows 3.1, don't upgrade. VB 5 includes no support for 16-bit applications. VB 4, 16-bit, was the last version to support 16-bit development.

As far as reducing the size of the installation, you can try eliminating files you don't think you need; however, the Setup Wizard and most installation tools err on the side of caution when including files. I'd recommend just using a second disk instead of trying to second guess your installer.
