You need to find out which dll's your program needs in order to execute.  You need DLL Loader.  I put it on my ftp server so you can get it.  Point your browser to ftp://ftp.officewizard.com/outgoing and get DLLLoader.exe.  Pick your exe file and it will show you what DLLs you need to put with your exe.

You say what DLL I need to put with my exe, so how do I do this exactly?  Do I use a include statment?  Put them in the same directory?  Thanks for the answer I am sure I am closer to solving this problem.

You install your DLLs in two places on the user's system.  If the DLL is from a commercial source and it's possible that they already have an older DLL installed, you should install it in the  system directory (after checking the existing DLL version of course).  If the DLL is one you have written specifically for this program, install it in the same directory as the EXE file.  The DLLs that ship with your compiler go into the system directory.
