Applications do not require Visual Studio! This is something else -- could be too many reasons, and you did not provide any relevant information.

Since you have visual studio on the other machine it should be simple matter to try running it in the debugger to find out what is going wrong.

Hi SA nd Richard

Thanks for the reply.
one general queston. I have developed the MFC application in VC++ and i want this exe to run in any PC. So i want to clarify that is it mandatory that I need to install Visual Studio in all the pcs i run?
SA had replied that applications do not require VS and today my exe worked in one laptop which never had VS installed but failed in another pc.
any dll missing or any dependancies required?
