> Using VJ++ to complie an "executable" file still requires the latest JVM from microsoft. Am I not setting proper compiler options or is this truly Not a .exe file. I would think that it would be runnable by a machine without a JVM.

Hello, Bill,

That's very pity, but Microsoft keep on making this tricks. I was working with VJ++ and .exe it generates is nothing more but
small OLE app, calling MS JavaVM interface. It's like executable
ZIP, nothing more. You'll need MS JVM in either case.
