    MSVC++2008 console program portability

    Hello,
    My console program won't run on anybody else's computer! I have a WIN32-configured C++ console program, built in release mode. What settings must I toy with to make the program run smoothly on any (newish) Windows system?
    When I attempt to open it on my girlfriend's XP system, my father's Vista system, or seemingly any other, I am told that the application configuration is incorrect.

    Thanks in advance.

    MS doesn't ship the latest & greatest compiler's library files when distributing the OS, so you need to install the Visual Studio 2008 runtime library (search in MSDN) and it should be fine.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
