resource only dll

ITSpgrmr asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-20
I made a resource only MFC dll that is used by an application that I made.  I found out that the dll needs mfc71.dll and msvcr71.dll when the my application accesses the dll.  I don't want the program needing these dlls.  Can I set the dll to "Use Standard Windows Libraries" instead of using "Use MFC in a Shared DLL" to eliminate this.  I tried setting it in the properties for the dll's project but I get a few unresolved external errors and I can't compile it.  How can I fix this?
