my friend tried to play my game and it gave him the following message. "This application has failed to starte bceause the application configuration is incorrent. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem." what does that mean? it works on my system just fine? He has service pack 2 and dx9.0c just like me any ideas?

What did you use to design this game? (What language, libraries, ect..) It gives that error message when the Operating System is missing some of the files required to make the App run. (or cannot find them)

For example, I recently wrote an app in MFC, when I tried to run the program on a different system with the MFC run-time files, it gave the same error.

We'll need more information to be sure about the problem.

I've experienced that error before, using VC++2005 express, and if you used the same, you have to go into your project properties and select "Multi-threaded" rather than "multi-threaded DLL" under c++/code generation.

If your friend installs the latest .NET runtime it might work as well.
