I've developed a C application and can't figure out how to coax Visual Studio 2005 to give me a deployable .exe.
Details: The program is pure ANSI C (K-R). It uses one .h file as well as many of the ANSI standard libraries. It interacts with windows only with "printf", "fprintf" and binary read C commands.
Challenge: The C program works great on the machine on which I developed it. But when I move the .exe file to another XPPro machine (with all .net libraries but not Visual Studio) it won't even load.
Tried so far: I've tried to follow the MSDN "How to deploy project" pages but it wants DDL files etc. If I simply skip those steps the result still won't load on another XPPro machine.
I'm obviously missing something but I have clue what it is. I need help. Thanks.
