Visual Basic 5 Dependencies (without Setup Wizard)

 Visual Basic 5 Dependencies (without Setup Wizard)

I am using Wise to distribute an application created with VB 5.0 Pro.  I'
ve looked through the documentation of VB and Wise and have not received a
definitive answer for my question.  Perhaps we can figure out a definitive
answer for this question and save people in the future grief as well as
save me a great deal of trial-and-error.

Basically, I'm trying to decide which files need to be distributed with my
application.  This is *without the Setup Wizard*, so ignore the various
files the MS Setup Wizard needs.

First, MSVBVM50.DLL.  This obviously is required for a VB program to run.
However, does this DLL have any dependencies of its own?  If I choose to
make people download the runtime library separately, do I need to also make
sure they have any other files (such as the VC++ libraries?)

Okay, aside from MSVBVM50--I am using a couple of the standard OLE controls
(common dialog, sheridan tab, etc.) but no data access and no controls not
shipped in the box with VB 5 Pro.  Besides my .EXE and .OCX files (and the
runtime discussed above), do I need to install anything else?  Do the .OCX
files shipped with VB 5 have any dependencies (MSVCRT?  MFC40?)

So, to recount my question: Can I ship my Wise-installed program with just
the following files:


and then the VB Runtime zipped up all itself for separate download?

Does the minimal Windows 95/NT 4 installation contain all of the other
files my program will depend on?  If not, what other files must I include?

Thanks for any experiences, help, or insight.  If it's just as easy, feel
free to e-mail as well as post.  If not, I'll be happy to read your
response here!
