Application Failed To Initialize Properly

P: n/a
I built a very simple program called First.exe. It is a form that has a
few text labels on it and a picturebox that displays a JPG. Nothing else.

Works fine on the computer it was built on.

Gives the "Application Failed To Initialize Properly" message when run
on other computers (w/o VStudio) and terminates. I didn't think it was
necessary to distribute anything other than the .exe. What am I missing?

The target machine needs to have the .NET Framework installed. You can
download it from MSDN. Usually, if computers are up-to-date with their
patches from windows update, they should have the .NET Framework installed.
You can get the framework from here (latest version 1.1):
http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframewo.../framework1_1/

Also, you need to make sure that the framework version on the target machine
matches the framework version that the app was built on (v1.0 versus v1.1).

hope that helps..
