    Include .dll in your .exe

    Hello, i want to run my programms on other computers too. The problem is that i dont know how to set my compiler (Micrsoft Visuall C++) so that he inlcludes the dll's in the exe file. That way i will be able to run the programm also on computer that dont have the dll files i need. Could anyone tell me how i have to set up my compiler to do that?! thankx

    Some dlls like Kernel32 & User32 cannot be explitly linked (as far as I know).....It depents on what you are coding and what you want to produce.......

    If you mean MFC....the go to Project -> Settings -> General -> Microsoft Foundation Classes and choose "Use MFC in a static library"

    If you use msvc std edition then you won't be able to do this as "Use mfc in a shared dll" is the only (mfc) option. Pro/Ent editions don't have this restriction.
