Difference between .net2.0 redist and IDE?

I have written a program that runs fine when launched from a PC with
VS2005 installed, but crashes when launched on a PC with just the
redistributable installed.

The message is the standard dialog box '..has encountered a problem and
needs to close'. Please tell microsoft about this problem.

There is no exception shown.

I can't install the compiler to track it down cause then the problem
will go away.

Any ideas?

Are you sure that difference is it?
No admin/standard user problems?

Lots of Greetings!

Found the answer!!

I was trying to run the debug build.

I recompiled for the release build and it works.

Issue closed.

That should not have made any difference. The debug code should be
doing the same thing as the release code unless you have som #If
conditional directives that run different code in debug mode.
