Standalone MFC application

I've written a MFC program using MFC AppWizard (EXE). But however when I just send only the .EXE file to a remote computer, it doesn't run and produce an error which says that a particular DLL is not found. My question here is how can I compile the whole program into a single .EXE file so that it can be run in remote computer?
For your information, my platform is Windows 98 and I'm using Microsoft Visual C++ version 5.0.

Any help offered is very much appreciated!

If you want to distribute your .exe-file there is no chance to compile the .exe-file as stand alone program. You have also to distribute the needed .DLL's that are located in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM (for example if you are using VC++ 5.0 you have also to distribute MFC42.DLL, MPR.DLL, msvcirt.dll, msvcrt.dll,msvcrt20.dll, msvcrt40.dll and maybe the newest comctl32.dll).
How can you find out, which DLL your program need ?
Sorry, thui, that I was the first for answering:
Look at the homepage of thui, the expert on this site with 80000 points, must be: http://ww.slip.net/~thui/Computers for a program, that is called DLLLOOK. Load this from his web-site and call your program after starting DLLLOOK. This program list you all needed DLL's, that you must distribute with your program.
There can also problems occure, if you want to run your program on a machine with Windows NT installed. The DLL's for Windows NT have another size then the DLL's for Windows 95/98. Maybe you have to buy InstallShield for distributing your program on several platforms.

Maybe that helped you a little bit.
Bye,
