Hi All,

 

Question i made a small program for a friend on my laptop at home and made the .exe to run off a flash drive. Now question is i made the exe file put on the flash drive and it runs fine on my computer but when i tested on another computer i get runtime error 76 path not found.  I think its because  the files are on my computer and pointed to the folder on my desktop but when the exe file is compiled and ran on another computer the path to the files are incorrect causing the error.

 

Can someone let me know if this is correct and if so how do i correct so i can compile run on any computer without errors ? 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks for looking

That could be any number of causes. Your code, VB runtime code, etc.

Are you sure the new machine has all the prerequisites? (E.g. if you're using VB6, you need the VB runtime, if you're using VB.NET, you need the correct .NET Framework version, etc.)

Can i nit pick at billy with out causing offense. VB.Net was only given the .Net prefix to distinguish classic VB from Visual Basic. VB.NET is considered the default for VB development. So when talking bout VB it's simply Visual basic. This has been the case since 2005. Classic VB is the One that needs to be distinguish.
