    Question Program that does not need to be installed.

    In the past, I came across some simple windows games which do not need to be installed. They are quite small in size also.

    I wrote a simple program in VC and took it to a computer without VC and it prompt me cannot find some dll.

    So my question is how to write programs which do not need to be installed to execute.

    i'm fairly sure that would involve giving up VC

    i seem to remember from my VC days that even hello world Win-VC programs use a VC specific dll or two (that most of us have by now, granted) Usually a program requires no installation as long as it does nothing to the registry and uses no foreign libraries.


    But what do you have against a zip file with a dll in it?

    or goto www.clickteam.com and check out there free install maker

    You;re not linking statically!

    Build->Set Active config->Win32-Release

    That should take care of it.

    maybe you're using MFC, and if you don't have the enterprise edition of VC, you cannot lik the MFC statically, so you have to send your program with the mfc dll.
