Can someone more advanced than I tell why this is happening? I wrote an application in C++ (VC6), as a Project of Win32App. I used some WinAPI. I compiled it and made an executable. It works on my machine just fine. But when I copy it (the .exe) to another computer and try to execute it, there is a message that 'It's not a proper Win-32 application' or sth. How is it possible and what to do to make a program work on every computer?

Took the .exe from the Debug dir, burned it to a CD, went 50 km away, and copied it frm the CD to HDD. Then executed... Isn't it how we do it? :)

P.S.: On both machines the system is the same (WinXP).

Get a dependency checker program to also see what dll dependencies the exe has also. This will save you a lot of hassles.

When something like this happens, you should really make a note of the exact error message. It'll make diagnosing the problem much easier.
