Visual Basic Fonts

Question:
I wrote an application in VB4.0 (16 bit) anddistributed it to a few friends. I then madesome changes to the Font property on a few of theforms and make a new .EXE file. When I sent the.EXE file only to my friends, they said thefonts did not change. Do I need to send anotherfile besides the .EXE file?

Answer:
When you changed fonts, did you pick a font that was installed on yourfriend’s computer? If you picked a non-standard font, you have to installthat font before running your program on that machine. If you did pick astandard font, did you save the file before building the executable? Iwould check those two things first.
