Hmm. It really does sound like the Open Tools 11 vcredist_x64.exe and vcredist.exe just need to be run on the desktop, but let’s got back and see if we can get more information about what the actual error is.
Can you please run the exe on your desktop within a command shell and see if more errors are printed? Also, I’d like you to build on the laptop in 32-bits and then run it on the desktop (sometimes 32-bit mode gives more error messages).
In both my computers, I have VS 2008 installed.
This doesn’t matter. It’s the Open Tools version that used.
Note that any binary built with MS Open Tools 11 (i.e. PGI 13.x and above) will not run on an XP system.
