    _stricmp is a string function that is provided by the Standard C Runtime Library.  See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp/c-runtime-library/reference/stricmp-wcsicmp-mbsicmp-stricmp-l-wcsicmp-l-mbsicmp-l

    You should provide more information about the nature of your application, the language in which it was written and the version of Visual Studio used.

    Then you should direct your questions about how to deploy and use the program to its author.

    Regardless, this is not a development issue.

    No, it's not a development issue.  From the limited information you were able to provide it appears that all the resources required by the unnamed application are not available. That is a deployment and usage issue that should be addressed by the author of the unnamed application.  It is unfortunate that you cannot obtain the necessary guidance from the appropriate source.  However, that does not change the facts.

    Even if someone was willing to pursue this issue, you have not provided sufficient information about the unnamed application as requested earlier. If you are not capable of answering such questions how do you expect us to help you?
