Any program built with .NET requires the .NET framework on a mchine to run. .NET applications will not run without the .NET frameowrk, or without an appropriate emulator.

Like java, it requires the runtime environment, because the code is not translated to machine code.

VB6 and VB.NET are completely different...besides the name and syntax, they have nothing to do with each other. when you package up a VB6 application, the required files are packaged with the exectuable...allowing the application to be run on another windows machine.

VB.NET uses files from the overall .NET framework...unlike VB6, the code is not compiled into machine code...it is compiled into a Common Language Runtime, and therefore requires that runtime to run.

You don't specifically require the .NET runtime, but you will require at least an emulator.

As an fyi...one does not need to but the .NET framework...it is part of the windows operating system...even if one is running an old version of windows without it, it can be dowloaded separately.
