    I've finally finished developing a program on VB and now I want to get it onto other platforms other than windows! Does anybody know any easy ways to get a VB app on other platforms without having to re-write my entire program in C++.

    What do you mean by other platforms. Programs developed in vb cannot be transferred to other operating systems, unix,macos etc.

    Other Platforms i.e Unix, Linux etc. I'm sure there are other ways to get around it. I.e some exe de-compiler or something. If I re-wrote the program in c++ I could re-compile it in literally any other platform.

    yes but c++ is hard to learn
    and decompiling.. no cos
    1. its illegal (well maybe)
    2. its nigh-on impossible, especially if u've compiled to native code.

    vb is propriatery (spelling ), so progs made in vb cant be used on anythign but Win32

    well. It's not illegal if I'm de-compiling my own program! I compiled in P-code because it create smaller exe's and is on par with native for most factors. See if I could de-compile it right down to where it calls for the VB runtimes etc then matybe I might stand a chance at making my app multi-platform.
