"Use MFC in a Static Library" doesn't seems to work

i'm trying to include the DLL of MFC inside the EXE of my application but i'm still getting this error message when i try to run my application in an XP Virtual Machine:

"This application has failed to start because of mfc100u.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

I don't want to give separate DLL with my application, i really want to include them in my EXE (and yes i know it will make the EXE bigger).

Any idea what i'm missing?  What should i do to really include these DLL?

(Note: I'm using VS2010)

thanks

Stupid question - have you set that option for both the Debug and Release build?

Stupid answer - No.

LOL!   Sorry.  I really forgot to do that, and i was doing my test with the Release version while i was doing the changes in the settings of the Debug version only.

I bet you never thought that you would get 500 points that easy? :)

Well, I know the conundrums of Visual Studio for a quite while now, and since  I sometimes forget to always change settings for both configurations as well, I thought this could be the most likely reason - [beep] happens ;o)
