Greetings,
until now I was developing some applications using VC++ 6, as they were originally written there. My clients were able to just get the executable and run it. When I moved to Visual studio 2010 they got error messages complaining about missing library files. What do they have to install in order to be able to run an executable built on VS 2010 ?

Do they have the latest versions of the Microsoft CRT. Download and install from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5555

These are the libraries for the C run time. You might also check how you link to the CRT in your project options.
Project Properties page
If you use "Multi-threaded DLL" then they will require the CRT download as your project will dynamically link to the CRT. With "Multi-threaded" your code will link statically to the CRT and they should not need the download. The CRT is periodically updated/fixed so the DLL option is probably preferable to allow updates from Microsoft without recompiling your code.

Cheers,
