Why is it that when I create a release build using Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express that when I run the program on a different computer I get an error that states: There was an error, uninstalling and reinstalling the application may fix this. Is it because I do a solution build?

Usually this means there's a file that you need to include with the program that's missing on the other computer. Assuming both computers are running Windows, this usually means a DLL. Does the error message tell you about a missing file, or is there a Details>>> or More... link or button on the error message? My first guess would be that your other computer doesn't have the right C Runtime library ("crt32.dll" or "crtdll.dll" or "msvcrt32.dll").

no, no missing files, but is it possible that since it displays in the default display( the command prompt/dos thing) that is the problem?

And im not sure about the .NET framework... but that is my error message, so i'll check that, thanks

how do I check on the .NET framework?

I did a google search on it, which brought me to a microsoft site, I downloaded it, installed, and the program still didnt work.

do I have to find and put those in the same folder as my executable?
Not kernel32.dll and ntdll.dll because those are windows system dlls. You should for msvcr90.dll.
