v1.7 win32 binaries don't run on some windows

Post by Mochilote »

Dependency Walker find that binaries have dependencies with at least one dll from VS2005.

Downloading this redistibutable from microsoft fix the problem:

Maibe this help is useful to others,

If in VS2005, for each project, change in project settings->General->Use of MFC From "Use Standard Windows Libraries" to "Use MFC in a Static Library", the dll dependencies disappear.

So maibe, the next public binaries may have this change.

Thanks, odd place to put the option since we don't use MFC!

Marcello ran into the dll requirements on Windows ME, I'm traditionally reluctant to build static binaries, but I guess in this case it gives us more compatiblity.

Of course, my experience says me that this is the most compatible mode, even if the MS libraries changes (for good or bad changes) your binaries will run exactly that when you compile and test it. :D
