As far as I know you will have to install the VB runtime, and probably also the Crystal runtime, files on each PC that will run your program. Once you have installed those support files you can run the program over the network as long as any specific DLLs, OCXs and TLBs are installed on each PC.

If I am wrong and anyone knows a way to do this without installing the runtime files I will be glad to hear the solution

Happy coding



how do i run my visual basic 6 program on a network and also my crystal report that was created using visual basic 6. thanks


just create a shortcut to the file and save it on your desktop

remember to ensure that the client pc you are running from has the relevant dll's installed
