    Executable with unwanted dll dependency (Borland)

    How can I get rid of CC3250.DLL (single threaded) or CC3250MT.DLL (multi threaded) dependencies over a built executable under Borland 5 Professional?

    I just noticed this by chance. It's a simple console project. No VCL, no nothing. With just iostream and iomanip includes and using the std namespace.

    I tried to build it again as a release version and still nothing.
    Looked at BCB 5 documentation, and if I read it correctly, need to include the corresponding .bpl package in the compiler options. But I couldn't find it under the lib folder (or I don't know which package it is).

    Please don't tell me this DLL will have to go with all final release applications. It's a ~1.4Mb file and completely defeats the idea of a small sized app.

    make sure you check both the library and include directories...beyond that i suggest writing borland/checking their FAQ...perhaps you need to download the .bpl package from their site (i only have the command line version of bcc55) sorry i couldn't be of more help

    Deselect 'Use Dynamic RTL' on Linker tab
    Deselect 'Build with Runtime Packages' on Package tab'

    Thanks Davros

    That did it.
    This will off course bring yet a batch of new questions... but when the time comes I'll be asking them if I didn't figure it out myself by then.

    For now I'm happy
