    I'm no expert, but to compile your project into standard .exe do the following:

    Click the "File" menu and mouse down to "Make EXE". Then click on it.

    That's it.

    This is called a Visual Basic compiler. I'm not aware of any 3rd party ones, just Visual Basic.

    So why not just use VB? Or do you not have it installed? If not, you can try searching google for "Visual Basic Compiler" or "3rd party visual basic compiler" and see what kind of stuff comes up.

    Re: Pls Help!!! hOW To Convert .vbp to .exe

    You need to use only the VB6 compiler to compile the VB6 application. For doing so,

    Try finding your VB6 EXE in your machine. Let us assume the path is

    "D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\VB6.exe"


    Then you project vbp file is <ProjectFile.vbp>. Inorder to execute the file without the IDE, get into the DOS prompt mode

    D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\VB6.EXE <ProjectFile.vbp> /make


    The <ProjectFile.vbp> file name should include the full path of the folders in your machine.

    And if you have VB installed then all you need to do is right click the .vbp file and select "Make".

    I purchased my registered version VB Pro in 1998 but didn't start programming with it till 2007. I think I paid in excess of $500.00 back then. So as I understand your question and reply... You don't have VB6.0 on any of your computers, but you want to compile VB code that someone else wrote? If this is not the case then I'm totally perplexed. If this is the case then .... Sccatta!
