    Running an EXE file

    Hi

    i am using Borland 6 and was wondering how i create the program and then make the exe file executable on a system that does not have borland installed. i hear that there is an option to do this but i am unsure how to go about this.

    can anyone help?

    If you have an .exe file, it'll run an any windows computer (within reason, probably not Win95 anymore). Once your program is compiled into an executable file, you don't need Borland anymore.
