How to make my program compatible with windows 95

I have a MFC program, made in visual studio 2005, i need to make it compatible with windows 95, only it keeps requiring files like MSVCR80.DLL, and it's giving errors that this file is linked to the missing export kernel32.dll:GetLongPathNameW.

I'm guessing that there are certain commands called from kernel32.dll that are not there, because im putting DLL files next to the EXE program i'm trying to run.
It should ofcourse run without any DLL files next to it, but i added them anyway to get a more detailed message of what is going on.

on Vista it works like a charm, to add as a notice. without additional DLL's. just EXE.
Some configurations:
Debug Information Format: /Zi
Optimization: /Od
Runtime Lib: /MDd

Okay, here is a solution i've come up with after some hard brainstorming.
I've installed visual studio 6.0  instead of using visual studio 2005 (with vb8.0)
visual studio converts the existing scripts to vb8.0 and all kinds of problems will occur with the code being inconsistent.

problem solved.
