Well as few as possible, obviously. :) Minimally, you could get away with 1
DLL for SVN, which would contain the COM interfaces to SVN statically linked
to the SVN library. On top of that you'll end up having however many DLLs
the VB runtime, and associated controls require.
Aside from that, it's relatively simple to construct a MSI based Installer
with the Visual Studio Installer. (Available freely at
Write a .MSM (merge module) for the SVN COM object, and each of the UI
controls, and then a wrapper .MSI for the VB app itself.
Heck, I'll even volunteer to do the initial rev of it once the VB code's
been checked in. (It's that easy)
