I have searched the internet high and low but all posts I have found on this topic have been confusing to me... It is quite clear that there is something basic I am not getting... please help...
My applications are written in VC++ 2008 Express and all source code is included in my projects (no .dlls used, just #include <windows.h> etc). The debug exe files run fine on my PC which has VC++ Express which is OK for now. But if anyone could explain how to compile an exe file from a project that will run on a second PC without installation of anything that would be great. Keep it simple as I am new to this field... The file size can be big, that is no problem. I just want to be able to share an application without telling the user to install something other than my program. If I have to purchase something, what would that be? How much would it cost?
