My VB program works just fine on my machine, but I want to share it with a friend. Just to see what whould happen, I gave then an .EXE -- of course it failed for lack of supporting elements.
I tried Tools->Publish->Build Outputs, and the wizard seemed to be doing what I expected, but when it completed "successfully", my "Outputs" were somewhere in Limbo. The wizard made me choose "repositories", "folders", etc., but no offered choices were anything recognizable on my system. I couldn't find a trace of my work!
I hope I don't need another couple hundred dollars worth of development tools!
