Hi,

I have a C++/CLI application using Winforms which has used to work great until I updated to VS2005 SP1. Now alot of users are complaining about problems with starting it up.

Under Vista it says that the "side-by-side configuration is incorrect".

So the obvious question is... how do I correct it I'm rather clueless since I got no indication what goes on (it works fine on the dev machine).

Thanks in advance.

Does your app have any dependencies on the C Runtime Library If so you'll need your users to run the vcredist_x86.exe (SP1 version) on their machines.

vcredist_x86.exe is found here:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\vcredist_x86

I think it might use the CRT since I natively manage time_t in the app.

However I've tried to deploy the redist package to one of the users and they returned and said that everything works fine now.

Thank you very much for your assistance.
