Visual Basic 2005 executable sharing

Hello there!

I have a fairly simple issue, I think, dealing with sharing an executable between a few computers.

I have MS Visual Studios 2005 on Windows XP, SP 2. My program works fine n'dandy on my local machine. I can take the Release executable and run it from any folder and it'll work.

The issue came up when I try to run this on another computer. I transfer it down the GoToMyPC link to another computer, but:

"This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."



I did indeed reinstall the MS VS 2005 on that machine, but it still comes up with the same error.


Most of my experience is with actually programming, and not with the higher end of things like transforming the code into actual applications and having them be portable. I didn't find too much relevance on my google searching, so I'd like to ask you guys if there are some basic app settings in VS 2005 I need to set in order to have an executable file work on multiple machines?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Visual Basic 2005 executable sharing

Oh, and another thing I tried:

I created a new VS 2005 project on the other computer, transferred all the .h and .cpp files over and added them into the project. It did not run on the other computer, but this process does work on my local machine.

I then created another project on that other machine. I duplicated the project as I orignaly had it on my local machine and just copy-pasted the test into the corresponding files on the other machine.

That didn't work either.

After pressing F5 in debug mode and then Yes on the next dialog to make a new build, I get this:

"Debug information for ... cannot be found or does not match. Binary was not built with debug information."


...I'm at a loss at this point. Any suggestions?

Re: Visual Basic 2005 executable sharing

Details probably help, lol:

This is a simple program with 3 .h files and 4 .cpp files. Thats it.

The project is created in the C++ settings with Empty Project.

I dont change or modify anything after that, its all code based.

Re: Visual Basic 2005 executable sharing

Actually it looks like I was mistaken!

The program does indeed launch the user interface window, but I just never saw it because the error message came up instead.


I'm unfamiliar with it still, and would love to know what it means and how to fix it.

Thanks again!
