    Question About Borland..

    Here is my question.. I downloaded the Enterprise Trial of Borland C++ Builder 6 the other day. I have been fooling around with it a bit. I made a tiny app, and compiled it. It works great on my comp, but when my friend tried to access it, it gave him errors. Why would that be? Because it is a trial, am I not allowed to distribute maybe? I just gave him the *.exe. I don't believe any other files are needed. I am sure, that is he had the exact same prog installed, it would work, but that's not gonna happen. Anyways, any help would be appreciated. Thx!

    Borland's website says the evaluation is "fully functional" (only time limited)....

    There may be some sort of runtimne needed depending on how you built your app...I am not familiar with Borland, but in MFC, there's a dll that some MFC progs need to use.....

    You may be right. When they open it up, it gives them an error about some vcl.h file. That is a header file that I use. But, obviously, I don't think it would do any good putting that file with the app I made. I went into the compiler settings to see if anything was wrong, but nothing was. I never heard of MFC, what is the website for that? I may give that a shot and see if it makes a difference.

    Sorry, MFC is a class library that comes with Visual C++...unfortunately I dont know of any downloads for it...

    Your right...an app shouldnt need a header to run on another computer......

    It may be that its an evaluation version......I dont know. Maybe someone a bit more Borland-Savy can help

    There are a few dll's which are installed when you install c++ builder. These dll's are needed for the prog to work.

    cw3220.dll is one of them. Maybe it's the only one, or maybe there are more.

    Under the new project dialog below libraries it should say dynamic and static most likely dynamic is the one selected you want to use static, then you shouldn't have any problem with giving it to others
