Hi

  I have created one DLL lets say XYZ.DLL in VS2005 in Windows XP and a small test application XYZ.exe to test that dll. Its perfectly working fine on that machine .
When I try to use that XZY.exe and call XYZ.DLL on fresh installed Windows XP I got following error
" The System cannot execute the specified program"

I copied following files into system32 folder
msvcm80.dll
msvcp80.dll
msvcr80.dll

But still getting same error
Then I tried with dependency Walker and I got same error for both XYZ.exe and XYZ.dll

Error: The Side-by-Side configuration information in "XYZ.EXE" contains errors. This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem (14001).

Also when i tired these exe and dll on windows 2000 fresh installed after copying msvcr80.dll it worked fine.
Only problem is in fresh Windows XP.


I am not sure how to resolve this.Is there some project settings need to be done.

Any ideas guys??/
