What DLLs?  Some DLLs are expected to be present on ANY valid Windows platform and will always be required.

Please specify.  If you mean MFC DLLs, then use the Project Settings>General  and the Use MFC in a Static Library option to statically like the MFC runtime to your application.  But even if you do this, SOME DLLs will still be loaded at run time.

Go to Project->Settings and specify as "Static linking" instead of Dynamic Linking for the MFC dlls. That should solve ur prob.

Try it out.
