MSVCR100D.dll missing failure, even after installing redist

Hi

I have an application compiled with Visual C++ 6.0 which I am trying to run on a newly configured Win7 Pro computer (32bit)

I am getting a failure "The program can't start because MSVCR100D.dll is missing..."

First I  tried running the vcredist.exe from Visual Studio 6 with no luck.  Then I installed the vcredist for visual studio 2005 with no luck. Finally I downloaded and installed vcredist for visual studio 2010, and STILL no luck.. Each install I "ran as administrator"..  I've searched the entire hard drive and that file is not found.

I suppose I could download it from one of those DLL share websites, but that seems like a hack.  What am I missing here?

What you are missing is that you are apparently trying to run a Debug version of your application. Try to create a Release build and everything should be fine.

If you really need a Debug version, set VC++ to use the CRT as a static library ("/MTd") , so no other DLLs are needed, the downside is that your executable will be larger.

hmmm.. I am not intentionally running a debug version! If I am, well, this day has been FAR too long :)

I will check.

.. checked..

you are correct sir..  I think it's time to call it a day!   Good news is that this is the last of my project workspaces  to bring my whole world (finally) to Win7 and Visual Studio 2010..
I put off this upgrade from XP and Visual Studio 6 for far too long, gotta say I'm loving the whole new environment!

thanks again JKR
