Problem Running Windowed Programs
« on: December 24, 2008, 05:53:30 pm »
I am having trouble running programs that use the SFML Windows package.

I can run these programs perfectly fine on the Vista machine where I compiled them with Visual C++ 2008 Express.  However, when taking the programs over to an older Windows XP machine, I can't get them to run.  I get the "[Program] has encountered an error and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience" error.

I've included the appropriate SFML dll's, made sure the VC++ redistributable was installed on the XP machine, tried debug and release versions, and tried dynamic and static linking with the SFML libraries.

I can run programs that just use the SFML systems package perfectly fine on the XP machine, but not any programs that use the systems package.

I also compiled a basic Window program using just the Win32 API (no SFML) on the Vista machine, and this program ran perfectly fine on the XP machine.

Any help would be appreciated.

The XP system does not have Visual C++ Express installed, right? Try installing VC++ Express onto your XP machine, to see if the problem is with SFML or not.
