    Missing MSVCR80D.dll in windows xp

    I have made this program, using visual studio express 2005
    on windows xp.

    It runs fine on my computer, but when I run it on other computers, it complains about a missing dll file: MSVCR80D.dll

    Is it my IDE, which has such a "special" dll, which isn't on other
    windows xp installations

    Ps. I haven't got the sourcecode here (at work), but here's a
    link to the compiled program:

    I doubt many people are going to run that since you haven't posted the source code - it could be doing anything.

    I get this problem when trying to run on my other computer. Well, I don't anymore and it was compiled with 2003, but MSVCRT7.dll (or something similar) was missing. I copied it off my PC onto the other one.

    I'm not entirely sure if XP comes with it. My other PC is running XP but didn't have this one so...
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    You need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) on the target machine.

    Hi Ken Fitlike

    But you see, I expect that the programs I create with Visual Studio Express 2005 works with most windows platforms

    That looks like most of them to me.

    As an alternative, if you absolutely must, you can always statically link with the c runtime library.

    Nah, the problem is much simpler. You have to build the project into Release mode.

    Regardless of whether it's built as a debug or release executable the missing dll problem will remain; the only thing that will change is the presence or absence of the 'd' in the dll file name.

    Ok, I'm back from work, so here goes:


    Code:
    // This is a simple counter ;-)
    
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    
    int main()
    {
    	int i = 1;
    	int input = 123;
    
    	std::cout << "Counter v1.0 by The SharK" << std::endl << std::endl;
    	Sleep (2000);
    	std::cout << "Input Password ;-) " << std::endl;
    	Sleep(3000);
    	std::cout << "Pssst.... it's three numbers !" << std::endl;
    	Sleep(5000);
    	std::cout << "Ok, the password is: 12?" << std::endl;
    	std::cin >> input;
    
    	if ( input == 123 )
    		{
        	        std::cout << "CORRECT password !";
    		for ( i = 1 ; i >= 0 ; ++i )
    			std::cout << i << std::endl;
    			Sleep(5000);
    		}
    	std::cout << "WRONG Password :-(" << std::endl;
            std::cout << "Press [Enter] to continue" << std::endl;
    
    	// To force [ENTER]
    	std::cin.get();
    	std::cin.get();
    
    	return(0);
    
    }
