    Cool file is needed to run an executable

    Hi All,

    I sent a friend of mine an executable file of my program to run on his PC but he couldn't. Is there a dll file that he needs to run it , and if so which one? He doesn't have visual studio.

    Many thanks

    Probably. There is an installer on the MS web-site to install the runtime components needed to run a Visual Studio generated executable. Note that this ONLY works for non-debug (release) type executables.

    Search the msdn.microsoft.com for "redistribution runtime" or some such.
