Hi. I created a simple MFC7/.NET game and would like to know how to link the game statically to MFC, so that it doesn''t require .NET to be installed on the running machine. I have never done this before and I could not find the solution in the .NET documentation, so please give me a step by step instruction. Thanks

well if it''s an actual ".net" program, you can''t simply statically link it. However if it''s an mfc prgram written on the VS.net ide:
right click on the project file and select properties.
and lo and behold there on the first screen staring you in the face is a setting titled "Use of mfc"
change that puppy to "use MFC in a static library"

however as I mentioned before... if it''s a .net game this won''t work and if it''s an mfc game you won''t need the .net runtime anyway.

"That''s not a bug, it''s a feature!"
