How do I create a stand-alone application in C++Builder.

Author: Embarcadero USA


Question:



How do I create a stand-alone application, i.e. one that does not require external DLL or BPL files?


 

Answer:



There are two project options relevant to this problem. Making the following changes will cause Borland packages and the C++ runtime library to be compiled into your executable file:

  • From the main menu of the C++Builder IDE, Click Project, Options, then the Linker tab. Uncheck the option labeled “Use Dynamic RTL”.
  • In the same window, click the Packages tab and uncheck the option labeled “Build with runtime packages”, and click Ok.

Note: 3rd party C++ libraries are not affected by these settings. ActiveX controls used by the application must always be deployed in a separate file.
