    Most any compiler is going to create an exe on a Windows machine.
    So, VB.Net, C++, C#, C, VB6, F#, FORTRAN, Ada, COBOL, etc...

    Re: software to create an .exe

    A glance at your post history suggests that you are using VS already, in which case you are already creating exe. You can't even test an application without creating one in VS. So, I'd have to say that I don't understand the question. Is this more about deploying? Were you unaware where the exe was being created? Something else?

    It is about deploying. I actually need to deploy my app. Tried using inno for deployment. This is why i am asking if there is any other software to do so

    Re: software to create an .exe

    When you deploy an program it doesn't create an exe, the exe is already created. So what you're really asking is how to deploy a program. Is that right? If so, what problems are you having? You said you tried Inno, what happened.

    There's also ClickOnce, which has a variety of options. You can use ClickOnce to create a CD-based install, but I've never tried it that way, so I don't know what limitations it may have. When I've used ClickOnce, it was deployed from a web server. That's fairly convenient...if you have a web server.

    Re: software to create an .exe

    Are you actually asking how to create a Setup.exe that will deploy your application? Please try providing a FULL and CLEAR explanation of the problem. Assume that too many words is better than not enough. It is very rare that one sentence can convey everything that is relevant and that is certainly the case here. Try as hard as you can to help us help you.
