I generaly practice coding in C, but have recently decided that I might give VB6 a go, as it seems easier when writing programs for windows. I think I might have been put off the idea though as Ive been told that you cannot actually compile the code into a standard executable file, but instead the compiled code is a Visual Basic dependant file and that the user would have to have the VB system files. Is this true? Is there any way of compiling an ordinary .exe? Am I better of coding in C using the winapi?
I dont want to go through all the hastle of installing VB6 if its not worth it
