[osg-users] osgViewer crash loading textures under Windows Vista

Instead of installing Visual Studio on the client computer you can
download and install the right vcredist package from Microsoft. The
one I think you need right now is:

On what format are the textures? The PNG plugin (osgdb_png) needs
libpng dll to be included, the TIFF plugin (osg_tiff) needs zlib dll
just to give you an example of files you also need.

As Erik den Dekker wrote, the dependency walker is a really good tool
to solve problems of this kind. Another way to get help is by starting
your application from the command prompt and set the OSG_NOTIFY_LEVEL
environmentvariable to DEBUG before.

I hope it helps. Good luck!
