The files you need to run Visual Basic

Visual Basic Runtime Files is a pack of files used to run applications created with Microsoft Visual Basic Express.

Visual Basic Runtime Files include a library of components that make the popular application-creating software Visual Basic easier to use. It's an essential software pack used to run any software built with Microsoft Visual Basic.

Installing this pack can be tedious. Generally speaking, Visual Basic contains the runtime library you need to get the program working on its own. This library is installed on the client computer during the setup process. If this is not the case for you, to allow the program to work, you must download and install these Visual Basic Runtime Files independently to the destination computer.

What you'll first need to do is create a download folder on your computer. Then click the link to start the download. When prompted by Visual Basic Runtime Files to do so, choose "Save this program to disk" and click "OK." Then choose the folder you just created on your PC. Run the file from the download folder and, when prompted, select the same folder. The contents of the Visual Basic Runtime Files .EXE file in this folder should open. Also note that this file won't install if your PC is in compatibility mode.

Although the setup process may be tedious, Visual Basic Runtime Files is an essential library of components that assist in running Visual Basic.
