This event is usually logged when an application has been dynamically linked against the C Runtime Library (CRT), yet is executed on a machine that does not have the latest DLLs in the search path.

In this case, you will either need to make sure that you include the latest DLLs when you distribute your software, or link statically against the CRT.

For example, in project properties of Visual Studio 2005, navigate to "Configuration Properties - C/C++ - Code Generation" and select the appropriate option under "Runtime Library" (one that does not include "DLL").
