    You cant guarantee it....

    If you have VC++ Professional or higher, yopu can statically link the MFC runtime and therefore you wont need these dlls

    Fordy's solution sounds like the only safe way to go.

    If you're still interested, I checked three Windows 98 machines and one Windows 2000 machine. All had MFC42.DLL, but not MFC42LOC.DLL.

    If you have an installer, you could include them and have them installed. I'm not sure about the legality of this though.

    You might have a point there...I havent checked that.

    Also I noticed that more features of MFC you expose (IE automation for a good example), the more of these annoying dlls you need....

    Also the dlls are not backward compatible.....1 version of MFC needs its version of the dll....

    Best bet is to go with the professional versions...then you statically link the runtime and dont have to worry
