I triedcopying the project and filesto a PC with Win95 and 32-bit compilerbut it still has 16-bit contros.Can you give me a suggestion how I can convert or make a new executable with little or noeffort. Thanks.Angel.

Answer:
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.
