Not knowing much about anything, I translated & compiled a project I had written in Delphi 6, with C++ Builder 6.
This ran just fine on my PC and the file size was nice and small...I was impressed.
Then I gave the file to someone else and that was when the problems began....it started complaining of missing .dll's on their pc.
If you want to distribute your files and avoid the problem I had this is what you have to do:
- Under project/options/linker you need to uncheck "Use Dynamic RTL"
- and under project/options/packages you need to uncheck "Build with Runtime Libraries."
Unless you do this, others will have trouble running your apps.
Be prepared to see the file size grow enormously
This applies to C++ Builder, not Delphi. The default settings in Delphi work just fine and you don't have to change them.
