    C++ GUI Question

    I created a program using VS.Net and it's easy GUI creation. However, any computers I want to run my program on must have the .Net architecture installed, which is a major pain. If I create a program using MFC instead, will I have a similar problem (any architecture installed) or can I run the progam on any windows computer without having to install something first?

    Thanks

    It should work having to install anything.

    The program would still require MFC DLLs.

    If you do a static linking of MFC app, you won't need any other files installed, but you might end up with a really big executable. If you do a dynamic linking, you may need to install some dlls on target machine

    You might get a better answer on the Windows forum.

    I don't have .NET, but isn't there a way to use the "easy GUI" tools, and then compile as regular non-managed "stand-alone" code???

    No, there isn't, because the easy GUI tools use the .Net Framework classes.
