Which error ? Do you give a release build of your app ? Do other people install the Visual C++ runtime DLLs (vcredist_x86) ?

The Visual C++ runtime DLLs, if you compile with it.

And I also asked for the exact error message, please.

You should be able to just give out the dll's.  I don't know the name of the file, but a bit of experimentation should figure it out...

you can do a static link
google says you can do this with Properties | Configuration | C/C++ | Code Generation | Runtime Library.
but I don't know if it's really there and I have no visual studio on this pc

No, because you need to use the same CRT option as SFML (and generally all libraries you're using), and SFML uses dynamic link.

Use this setting (release mode): Multi-threaded (/MT)

Under:
Properties | Configuration | C/C++ | Code Generation | Runtime Library

You probably have to rebuild the libraries, can't remember.

Besides ms redist pack there is another way to distribute legally ms runtime libraries. I mean including in your distribution pack those dlls along with the manifest file.

That's why I compiled them myself with a static link on windows.

Well, you should take extra care when doing this, it can cause many issues.
