I've been working on a small app that lists available BZFlag servers and launches BZFlag if you want to play. Since its easier to show than describe with words, here is the screenshots for Linux and Windows.
The first version is ready for release, but Windows compiling is giving me a headache. I use VC++9 Express Edition. I've made a NSIS installer which also installs the msvcr90.dll - and that seems to works on some version of Windows. However, with strayers kind help I found that this isn't good enough as some gets an error saying:
I know there is a vc++ 9 redist package - which I could ask users to install, but if I can, I like to avoid this. (Would be nicer if this was installed without asking the user to do it). But is this is best (as in foolproof) approach?This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
My experience with Windows Development is very very limited so I hope someone can point me in the correct direction. I've been googling but I'm having a hard timing gaining an overview of what my options are. And since a lot of the guides I found begins with "For non-express editions [...]", I begin to wonder if there is any good solution to my problem.
