Command Line Applications with Visual Studio 2008 and C++

From time to time the need arises for me to create a command line application for Windows using Visual Studio 2008.  Lately I keep forgetting the same thing for my project and when I copy the application over to another Windows machine that doesn’t have VS2008 installed, I run into the following error “The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more details.”. Unfortuantly what I fail to remember is that by default VS2008 wants me to create managed code.
