I have an app...

I have a nice little program launcher app I wrote for my own USB drive. Any chance of having it hosted here?
I can provide source code (in VB...).
As far as I can tell it requires XP to work, although it may also require an installation of office (I know, VB sucks...). If this is the case and enough people want it I'm sure I can get it to work on older versions of Windows.

Runtimes, etc

Generally, it will require the VB runtime for whatever version of VB you wrote it in. Plus any shared DLLs and controls it utilizes.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I know it will require the VB runtime, but that's included in recent versions of windows and is likely to have already been installed on older versions.
It has worked on every XP machine I've tried it on, but when I tried it on a 2000 machine it crashed with a database-related error. All machines I have tried it on (including the 2000 one...) had MS Office installed (2003 or XP).
I use it on my own USB drive, which is what I wrote it for, so works fine from USB. I even have it set for autorun.

XP Only

The VB runtime files are only included with XP. And not every version of the VB runtime, but it looks like yours is. XP accounts for about 75% of computers online, but that's a good chunk left with it not working on.

MS Office does it require MS

Does it require MS Office ? if yes, this is bad since most of us use portable openoffice and/or abiword portable.

Well, I know it requires a recent version of the JET database engine, which is included with MS Office, but also a good number of other products and is also available seperately from microsoft.com.
I could modify its innards to remove this dependency but as it is no problem to me, I would like to at least make it available to others before I start work on this.

Can you just post it on some free web host?
Or put the source here?
