I have built a C++ Win32 MFC application in the Visual Studio 11 Beta.
It runs fine on the machine I have built it on.
I tried to run it on another machine in XP service pack 3 but get the message
"not a valid Win32 application"

Before I investigate further can you please tell me if executables built using the Beta version are valid to be run on a different machine, or are they perhaps blocked in some way?
