Sunday, January 27, 2008 10:44 PMI am new with Visual C++ Express (2008), but not with c++ in general (I switched to visual c++ as I wanted to learn directX).
I compile and run the application just fine, on the development computer. When I try to run it on another computer (without VIsual C++ Express 2008 installed) I get the following error:
"This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem (14001)."
After poking around a little bit I learned I should install vcredist_x86.exe on the computer I wanted to run it on but that did not solve the problem. So what exactly causes this? And how do I solve it? Thank you.

Have you installed the correct version of vcredist_x86.exe?
For applications developed with Visual C++ 2008, you should install the package from below link on the target machine.
Hope this helps!

I had the same or similar problem.
I had to recompile as a RELEASE version.
Then I had to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
My app worked fine after this.
FYI: Check the Framework version needed by selecting Project then <project name> Properties; or Alt-F7.
Targeted Framework: shows the version number.
