you can release a cd with VB run lets not freak out boys - very simple to make the executable copy the neccesary files into the end users directory. very simple to do. and if you wanna get fancy with it use an ini file to make it happen only ONCE! So if you know vb or how to use VB "pretty good" there are enough VB tutorials online that will help you do EVERYTHING i just mentioned in about 25-30mins of developing time.

Here I'm going to help you by giving you this article
http://www.vbda.org/Newsletters/99-12_NullWriter.htm

Now I've read but never tested that VB 3 will allow you to place the .dll's in root directory of your app and that it will function (VB 3 was damn ugly.. so that's an out for me) :)

Someone also said that this feature is available in newer versions like VB5 & 6, though I could never figure out where.. If you insist on distributing applications and our unable to include the runtime files then eventually one of your users will run into this error and that's pretty unprofessional programming (that's just my opinion)
