C++ runtime required


Why do some C++ projects require a runtime package to be installed, while others do not?

EDIT:How to make a project to work without the runtime?

Best Solution

Some will have been statically linked, while others will depend on a dynamic library, loaded at run-time. To link your own project statically, you need to change your project configuration - how you do this depends on the compiler/linker and/or IDE you are using.
