I have Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Express open. I want to run this Auto Indenter for which I see the following files in a folder:
Autoindent.exp

Autoindent.vbp
Connect.DCA
Connect.Dsr
modAutoindent.bas
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Here are the installing instructions in ReadMe.txt:
Installing and add-in can be a pain! Trying to register the
dll and then add it to the vbaddin.ini can be tricky so...
To Install:
1. If files are zipped then unzip to a new folder.
2. Open the project file (AutoIndent.vbp) in VB.
3. Click 'File' then 'Make AutoIndent.dll'
4. Save the dll in the same folder as the other files.
5. Exit VB. Install complete!To Use:
1. Open the code in VB.
2. Click 'Add-Ins' then 'Add-In Manager...'
3. Find 'VB Code Auto Indenter'
4. Check the 'Loaded' box (and 'Start-up' if you want
it to to always load with VB)
5. Click 'Add-Ins' then 'Auto Indent Code'
6. Your code will be transformed!
(Any error in code will result in wierd results.)

You can refer this also and let me know if this helps.

To create an EXE from a BASIC program, you need to a program called a compiler. Compilers compile programs into machine code form.

Now, QuickBasic 4.5 includes both an interpreter and a compiler (and other features you don't need to know about). QBasic 1.1 was a derivative version, that had most of the features of QuickBasic 4.5 except the compiler, and was included with MS-DOS for free. (If you wanted to make EXEs you had to purchase QuickBasic 4.5). Later QuickBasic 7.1 came out, and it had some more features (particularly for database and financial uses) and was a little faster than QuickBasic 4.5. (It could also make EXEs.)

That's all ancient history. You're still supposed to buy QuickBasic 4.5 and 7.1, but Microsoft doesn't sell them anymore, nor does it seem to care that people download them from the internet. You may obtain all three versions from here:
www.brisray.com/qbasic/qdload.htm

To make an EXE, simply load the program, and select "Make EXE File" from the "Run" menu. You probably want to select "Stand-Alone EXE".

I hope this has been informative.

No, I am misunderstood. The .bas file modAutoindent.bas is Visual Basic 6 file. Using the "Build" menu selection on Visual Basic 2010 Express screen, .an exe can be created. Are you experienced in using Visual Basic 6? Then you can help me.
