MFC on 95/required DLLS

I developed an MFC application on a Nt platform using VC++ 5.0.  I recently ran the
application on a  95 platform, which didn't have VC++ installed.   It prompted me that
some dll files were missing, specifically MFC42d.dll and MSVCRTD.dll.  My
question is this:  Do I need VC++ installed to run this application on a 95
platform? Is there a way around this?  (I am assuming that this problem is not
a NT versus 95 problem...is this a correct assumption?  Is there a way to
compile so I do not need these dlls at runtime?

Thanks in advance

The easy way to get around that is to statically like mfc to yuor project so you don't need the dll's....under project..settings...and on the tab general there is a section called Microsoft Foundation calsses....select USE MFS as a static library and build it.  It makes the program bigger, but it is faster....and you don't nedd the dlls

the word LIKE should be LINK...you want to statically link instead of dynamically link and MFS should be MFC...otherwise I think you can follow it

If it doesn't work, you have to generate an installation program. Then install your software in other computers.
