Make EXE File Command (File Menu)
Creates an executable application by combining the forms and modules in a project into a single executable file.
An executable file runs without invoking Visual Basic. To run an executable file, the run-time file VBRUN300.DLL must be in a directory on the user's path.
This command does not affect the project files. You can still work with your original files without affecting the executable file.
Dialog Box Options
File Name Type the file name for the executable file or accept the default. Unless you specify otherwise, Visual Basic automatically adds the default file-name extension .EXE to an executable file.
Directories Select a directory from the list. Select the drive or directory where the file is to be stored if different from your current path. (Your current path is displayed above this box.)
Drives Select a drive from the list.
Application Title Specify the title for your application or accept the default (the project name). This title will appear in the Microsoft Windows Task Manager when the executable file is running.
Icon Shows the icon that the Microsoft Windows Program Manager displays for the application. The default icon is the icon for the startup form.
Use Icon From Select an icon from among those you've assigned to the Icon property for forms in the project.
OK Creates an executable version of your application.
Cancel Closes the dialog box without making an executable file.
