You can start by explaining what you mean exactly because, as it stands, your question is completely incomprehensible.

He probably means that when linking with an external lib, he gets a DLL missing message when trying to run the app on another PC. Or something like that.

chances are you have a dependency, such as a dll as Yann L suggests. Often programs have a dependency on 1 or more dlls that are considered the "Visual C++ Runtime" ... these dlls often have names like "msvc71.dll" etc. There are dependency viewers that will show you which dlls your program depends on, and there are redist packages which you can use to give these dlls to other people (who don't have Visual Studio Installed). Installing these dependencies is 1 of the things a professional program does during installation.
