    Unhappy Windows error running outside compiler

    my program runs great on my pc with all the necessary files to excecute the program from the MSVC, but when I run the executable on other windows, it returns the error message,

    Assertion Error: olecli3.cpp
    Line: 502

    Originally I got .dll file errors and realized the windows I was running my exe on was missing those, so I built a setup program to copy the necessary files onto the local pc, but this olecli3.cpp is not part of my resource files, its built into my MSVC, and I am guessing is being called from a header file built into the MFC predesigned source code.

    How can I get my exe to run on multiple windows with this error, did I not do my setup correctly?
    I'd like to put Murphy and his laws in headlock sometimes!

    It looks like you linked against a debug version of something. Make sure your "Release" configuration is using the right libs.
    For VC++ 6.0 check Project Settings -> C/C++ tab -> Code Generation Category.
    Also, I always link MFC staticly - drive space isn't an issue these days (but mis-matched DDL's are!)

    (Post Windows stuff in the Windows programming board).
