    Missing DLLs

    Im making MFC applications and on other computers its missing these dlls,mfc42d.dll,mfc42.dllmsvcrtd.dll,mfco42d.dll. I can simply include them in a .zip file with my .exe and have the user put them in their system32 folder, or i could make an installation setup. What should i use to make an easy setup, kinda like the one winamp uses. Suggestions please

    If you have a higher range compiler (VC++ pro or enterprise) you can statically link the code in these libraries so you dont need the dlls (consult your manual)

    If you have the standard version, then I suggest downloading Innosetup. Its a setup program and its free.....it takes a little time to read through the help pages and to use properly, but once you know what you are doing it's perfect.....add what files you want...place them where you want...make user aggree to terms.....add program group in start menu......add an unisntaller......crate shortcuts - bloody marvelous program IMO
