32-bit executable/controls

I have a 16-bit win3.1 version of of a project. We recently received user requested the software as win95 users. How can I distribte the program w/o having to develop a program in 32-bit. I tried copying the project and files to a PC with Win95 and 32-bit compiler but it still has 16-bit contros. Can you give me a suggestion how I can convert or make a new executable with little or no effort. Thanks. Angel.

Your 16-bit program should run 'as-is' under Windows 95 and Windows NT, so if your only requirement is to be able to run under 32-bit versions of Windows, you need not do anything. If, however, you want to create a 32-bit version of your app, you must use a 32-bit version of VB4 or 5 running under Win95 or NT. There's no way to create a 32-bit executable from a 16-bit version of VB.
