VB5.0 – Compiling

VB5.0 – Compiling

Question:
I have recently created a program in VB5.0 on a WIN 95 system… on that system the program works great. Now I want to make my program accessable on a Win 3.1 machine… how do I do this.. the program won’t run the way it was compiled.

Answer:
Visual Basic 5.0 creates ONLY 32-bit applications. This means that theywill not work under Windows 3.1. If you want to create applications forWindows 3.1, you will have to use either version 3.0 or version 4.0(16-bit) of Visual Basic. Microsoft has stopped supporting 16-bitdevelopment with the advent of Visual Basic 5.0.
