How to compile a standalone exe?


  • I've made an application that runs perfectly on my computer but doesn't run on another one (the error message says something about bad configuration and reinstalling the application). The project's configuration is pretty much the default one. I guess there is something I need to change in order to make it work as an standalone exe, so it runs in every other computer.

    Are you using .Net?

  • No, just something about wrong configuration. Could it be because I'm compiling the proyect on Windows Vista (not FOR Windows Vista, as far as I know, but on Windows Vista) and trying to run it on Windows XP?

    I'm not using .NET
