I build single project with 1 APP and 3 DLL. If I link APP and DLLs with STATIC runtime library I get runtime error in operator new and delete. If I link APP and DLLs with DINAMIC runtime library -- no problem. Why? How correct this problem?

I suspect that you have cases where one of the Dll (or EXE) allocates memory with new and another DLL (or EXE)frees it with delete.  If you have static linked libraries this won't work because each Dll and each Exe will have seperate "private" versions of the run-time library and therefore separate heaps for allocating objects.  When one Dll (or EXE) goes to free an object that was allocated by another Dll (or exe) it looks in its own heap and gets "confussed" and you crash.  If you use the Dll version of the runtime library, then there is only one "instance" of the library and therefore only one heap that is shared by the seperate Dlls and EXEs, thus no problem.  Solution--use the Dll runtime library.
