    Question Stand alone application (BCPPB6.0)

    Hello. I am using C++ Builder 6.0 and I would like to create a stand alone app. Could you please tell me which files to include in the installation and where to put them. Thank you very much.

    You mean, which runtime libraries you need?

    Are you creating a console application or a Windows one? If you're just making a console application, you probably don't need any runtime libraries.

    Well then, get a dependency walker. It will show you everything a program needs.

    Google will find one for you. Or you can search this board -- I remember this coming up before. Or, if you have MSVC, you already have a dependency walker. It's in something like tools/win95.

    Whatever happened to RTFM?

    I quote (from the BCB4 helpfile):
    When you finish coding your application and are ready to deploy it, you need to determine which files to include to make it run. These files are called redistributable files.
    Refer to the file DEPLOY.TXT in the main C++Builder directory for a list of files that you can redistribute in accordance with the Non-Nonsense License Statement. DEPLOY.TXT lists the files associated with each application option and specifies where the files need to be installed. Detailed information about deploying applications is located in Deploying applications.

    If you have the Professional or Enterprise edition of C++Builder, you can also use InstallShield to help prepare an install program for your application. InstallShield provides options to help you determine and include appropriate redistributable files.
    There is also a complete section in the helpfiles about deploying your application, split out into several parts for different types of applications.
