Error showing "Run-Time Check Failure #0"

After compiling the source code of OSG 2.6.0 and MANUALLY copying the binaries to another directory, I got the error message:

Run-Time Check Failure #0 - The value of ESP was not properly saved across a function call. This is usually a result of calling a function declared with one calling convention with a function pointer declared with a different calling convention.

This error pops up when I run an OSG application in VS2005 in Debug mode. This error looks a little scary, but after looking for information about this error, I found which pointed me in the right direction. It was because I copied the dll's and include directory (*dll, *.h), but not the library files (*.lib) to a new directory. I guess that is why there is an INSTALL project in the OSG solution that copies the files automatically :)
