Hi everyone

I have taken a bit of a break from SkyIDE but I am getting back into it.


I just installed VisualBasic Express edition. I am having trouble locating the VisualBasic Express compiler. Where abouts is the VisualBasic Express compiler located? Do not confuse this with VB.NET's vbc.exe. This is VisualBasic Express, part of the Visual Studio Express package.

 

The Visual C++ Express compiler is in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin, file name cl.exe however in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VB\bin there aren't any compilers.

Are you sure VBC.exe is wrong? AFAIK is the compiler the same in all VS-Editions only the IDE differs. Maybe you could trace it by using "Process Explorer"?

For me it's in:

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\vbc.exe

But this is from an install of VS 2005 Pro, which installs the .NET Framework SDK before installing the IDE.  The vbc and csc compilers come from the SDK installs.  I'm not sure if the Express versions do the same or not (but I suspect they do). 

If it's really not on your machine, you can get it for sure by downloading the .NET Framework SDK from:

http://www.microsoft.com/...c35dec&displaylang=en

Actually, I think vbc.exe and csc.exe are installed with the .NET Framework Runtime - you probably don't need the full SDK.  If that's correct, then vbc.exe must certainly be on your machine somewhere.

I hope you have downlaoded it from this resource.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualc/

If you unable to get it from the exe mentioned above then try your hands at:this SDK.

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys,

Yes, SkyIDE supports VB.NET's VBC.EXE but someone requested if I can also add support for VB Express just like I did for VC++ Express. VBC.EXE is installed by the .NET framework as you have already mentioned and I have implemented support for it already. I am not sure if VB Express is using the same one but yes, I will check things out with a process explorer. Thanks for the tip!
