I am making a MFC application in version 5.0  I want to run it on someone else's laptop.  However, that laptop has version 1.5 on it (and he does not want to upgrade it at this time).  My program works great on my machine with 5.0 and I have tried it on other computers that do not have C++ installed and it works great on those machines, too.  However, it will not work on machines that have version 1.5 installed.  I have tried it on 2 different machines with version 1.5 and I get the same result.  One thing that I need to mention is that I am putting the debug version on the other machine b/c when I compile it as a release version, the program crashes on my machine.  Since I need this to work soon to show the program to someone else, I am just using the debug version.

When I start the execution of the code from the CView screen, a dialog box says that an assertion error has occured.  THis is what it says:

Debug Assertion Failed!
Program: programname.exe
File: tooltip.cpp
Line: 383

The execution of my code begins by selecting a menu that I call "Start".  If I select it with the mouse then the debug assertion dialog box appears.  However, if I select the Start with the ALT-S key then the program works great for a while.  However, it eventually crashes with the same error.  It appears to be linked to the mouse somehow.  Alsot, isn't tooltip.cpp used for the message that pops-up from the mouse pointer when it is over a toolbar?

I need help soon.

Try compiling your program with MFC as a static library

I tried statically linking the program and the computer with version 1.5 gives me this error when I run it:

The trans1.exe file is linked to missing export OLEAUT32.DLL-420

I guess this is some sort of windows error.  I don't know what is wrong.

What do you mean by new common control version?  Is that referring to the Visual C++ package or to Windows? What effeects will installing what you said have on the computer?

Commented:
There are several versions of common control. That's referring to Windows. They come with different versions of IE. I am not sure whether you are using the new one. You can download the latest version at
