Default Creating Applications With VS20XX


Trying to find the answer to this question fails with search because the keywords are way to common and there's no means to filter out non-answers.

"Is it possible to create native, non-dot.net applications with Visual Studios?"

Specifically 2013, want to find out before installing and finding out the nasty way.

Reason is that I have reasons to compile to other window machines / versions that WILL not have the dot net runtimes installed on them.

If you are writing your apps in C++ then yes, although the target machines would still need the correct C++ runtimes installed.

If you are writing a .Net application then you need the correct version of .Net installed.

Then it's not going to swing for me, I've got several VB6 programs that needs work done to them and VB6, while installed, is not getting a reference to MSComctlLib from Windows 7. Though the darn object is installed best that I can determine.

Are you sure the target PCs won't have the .Net framework installed? It is often included with other software and is part of Windows Update as well so there is a chance the target PC is already good to go. If not you can always deploy the framework as part of your application install anyway.

I am fairly darn sure the target machines don't have the dot net framework installed due to one of 3 reasons:

1) the dot net framework would cause issues with existing programs.
2) OS version is old, eg 2000 and earlier, and no, upgrading them is very out of the question due to reason 1 above.
3) machines may not have access to the internet or be denied access to the internet due to router restrictions.

On Win 7, make sure you have installed VB6 SP6 (with elevation, if necessary) and/or manually registered the ocx and tlb (at an elevated command prompt).

Links related to above:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2...ndows-7-64-bit

Though you should be able to make it work natively on Win 7, if necessary you can create an XP Mode installation of VB6/SP6 on Win 7 Pro or above for doing legacy VB6 maintenance. I have it installed both ways on my work PC, but even so, confirming proper deployment of packages back to Win 2000 or before is a challenge.
