Hi,

I am a newbie to VB.NET. I have developed an application to call crystal reports from a form in VB. I run in debug in VS.NET and it works correctly with all functionality the problem is when you create an executable it just does not work.

Can anyone explain how I need to compile the project correctly in order that I am able to create an application installer. This is probably really simple and I apologise for asking silly questions.

Regards
Andrew

actually when you run your applications in the VS editer, the editor compiles your project and simply runs the *.exe file located in the solution's Bin folder, all you need to do is copy that *.exe file (and all the other files except the *.pdb file) and you've just copied your entire application (you can also start an Installer Solution in VS.net and use those files right from your application's Bin folder so you have an installer app to go with your actual app)

hope that helps
