There was a version called Visual Basic 5 Control Creation Edition which
was free. You might be able to get it from the M$ website. I remember
that is was on a lot of cover CDs from the glossy PC mags. You might be
able to find a copy about or go through back issue departments. I do not
have a copy here but I think it could create an .EXE but it needed the
software to be installed to run the .EXE not just the runtime library. I
might be wrong.
