Has your exe file being compiled correctly? If you say you want to copy it over to your flashdrive, where is the error occuring. In the copying or when you try and open it. Please give us some more info, and I am sure we can help.

hello sir thank for the reply,..can you give me the steps sir to connect ODBC?hoping for your positive responds..

sir thank you for this...i will write again if i have some doubt..more power to you...

hello sir,

you mean the connection string?i already make the connection string
but i want my exe file separated to the folder where it resides....how can i do this sir?...

You either need to get your connection string to

App.Path

to connect to your database. When you just copy the exe to say youe desktop, your desktop is your path to the database. If you have not copied the database to the same path as well, you will receive an error. This is why the app runs fine when the path and exe is in your folder...

Copy your exe and Database in one folder
change the database path in your code and use;
App.Path & "\project.mdb"

hello sir thank you for the reply..i got it sir i also copied my database to the desktop,without this database i can get an error...thank you again sir.

Changing an application can be done by doing this:

if you haven't change the Icon of you FORM then do this

Click your form.
Then look for Icon in Properties window.
Click [...] button and browse your icon file.

Now to change your Exe Icon.

In Menu, Click Project > Project Properties
Click the Make Tab
Just select your Form Icon that you want to use.

I Hope this will help you.

I know you will have this problem (But if you are using .NET version of VB, you will not have this problem)

You must have an icon editing tool, like this one (I use this always to edit my icons)..

http://www.axialis.com

Then. use it to edit your icon with "True Color" Format
(Windows XP icon format) (256 - 32 bit color) (16,8M - 32).

Thats it.

Actually, VB6.0 does not support a lot of icon formats that .NET does, like *.png or more than 256 colors or a size larger than 32x32. See the help files for more information or search the web for more accurate information.

Good Luck

.exe file must be compiled correctly to run it correctly.please compile it once again
