Entry Point Not Found


  • I compile my projects and binaries generate error on XP:

    "SECURITYADMIN.exe - Entry Point Not Found
    The procedure entry point sprintf_s could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll"

    I am developing using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition version 9.0; I am developing on a Windows VISTA 32 bit and my compilations are successful and it runs fine on VISTA. My problem is when I move my generated .exe binaries to XP. On XP the binaries fail with the "Entry Point Not Found" error message when you try to execute the files

    So I tried moving my source code to my Windows XP SP 3 computer with the same version of VS 2008 and recompiled the project and it compiled successfully, however the binaries are generating the "Entry Point Not Found" error message.

    It seems its a DLL issue. How should I go about fixing this please?
