When trying to run release version (MFC VC) on a computer withouts Msdev the application crashes without any message.it simply ends. After hard work I found out it happaned because of failing to load ocx. The application uses several ocx.
Is there any easy way to know which ocx causes the crash (in release version - No MSDEV!!!)
where can i find information on realese related problems ?
(the app works fine in debug compile)

If you are using MS VC++ for your applications, make sure that you have correct settings for both Release and debug Configurations.

 Also, how do you package your application to the target machine which doesn't have MSDEV? . If you use the MS VC++ 6.0, Tools->InstallShield , that packages application with required components, so that the target m/c runs the app withut any issues.

i hope this helps.
