Visual Studio and distribution

Post by Double Trouble » Wed Jun 25, 2008 7:27 pm

Hi!
I'm in Visual Studio 2005 and I wanna send my win32-application to other people that doesn't have Visual Studio installed.

I realize that I can just send the Visual Studio Redistributable Package (vcredist_x86.exe) along with my program but isn't there any way to include all the necessary files in my exe-file so that the user doesn't have to worry about anything other than running my application?

Thanks!
/DT

Ok!

So I found out that if I put this folder, Microsoft.VC80.CRT, including there files,

Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest
msvcm80.dll
msvcp80.dll
msvcr80.dll

in my release folder a user without Visual Studio 2005 can run my application! That's great!

EDIT: I found all of these files here:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\redist\x86\Microsoft.VC80.CRT
