My problem: I programmed a demo to apply for a job Now the company told me that they can not run my program cause it needs some DLLs of Visual Studio.NET. Now I don''t know what DLLs are actually required (because I have the DLLs so there is no error). Is there a way to find out what DLLs a application needs? Or a way to compile without the DLLs? Tx, Constantin

1) If your app uses the .NET framework (i.e. any Managed code), then it could be that they don''t have that installed. They should get it from one of the MS sites such as http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/technologyinfo/redist/default.aspx.

2) As for determining the DLLs used, you can use Dependency Walker or DUMPBIN to find out. More details here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vccore/html/vcconDeterminingWhichDLLsToRedistribute.asp

3) If your app uses an external SDK or library such as DirectX or OpenGL, make sure they have the version your app needs on their machine.

It''s likely that you have compiled your program in debug mode and therefore it''s looking for the Dll to support runtime debug support. Have you tried compiling a release build?

Thanks!
The DepandencyWalker was the tool I needed. Now I know which DLLs are required.
