hello i wrote a c++ program, and i wanted to send it to my friends, but everytime i send the exe file to them, they tell me they get the error: "The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect". I tried to put it on rapidshare, and i downloaded it to my computer, it ran. So i did a little research, and i dont really understand. is it because my friends have vista, or do i have to link staticaly (which idk how to do). Anyways the question is, how can i send the exe of a c++ to someone without sending them the code itself and then them compiling it. Thanks for any help.

static libraries go to Properties - Configuration Properties - C/C++ - Code Generation - Runtime Library and select either "Multi-threaded (/MT)" or "Multi-threaded Debug (/MTd). Otherwise, you'll have to distribute the runtimes with it.
