    It is not possible and you will need to use scripting languages like JavaScript

    Something wrong with that calculator attachment... my WinZip (current copy) says it does not appear to be a valid archive... try downloading it again... I DID... 3 times and it failed to open.

    Does anyone have the code for a VB.Net 8 calculator... would there be much difference. Can you send the code? The zip file with this code on this page won't open.

    Re-downloaded it once again and it works fine for me. I also tested from a second PC and it works as expected.

    No... It still does NOT open... "Cannot open file: It does not appear to be a valid archive. If you downloaded this file, try downloading it again.

    I tried it before multiple times and again today multiple times; and I tried it on both my desktope and my laptop... the zip does NOT open...

    I have the latests version of WinZip Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate... and I don't have problems zipping and opening files except with this one.

    I have uploaded one more file and this time the file does not contain the exe file but is same as the other one and let me know if this works. If not PM me your email address and I will try sending you in your email.

    I also remember this interface when I was in college and our professor told us to make a calculator and when we did it, it ran and it was actually our first program ran in Visual Basic.
