I created a DBase Data program and when I move it to another computer I get a  Borland Engin Error What files do I need or have to compile to get it to run on another system.

How do I get a directory listing as a text file like the Dos
command:  
          DIR C:\TEMP\*.* /B /ON >C:\HOLD\DIR.DAT

For 20 points you want two answers.....  They're gonna be brief.

The BDE must be installed on the machine where the databases are used (Unless you use the TClientDataset of Delphi 3).  The engine files are always grouped togeter in the same directory, IDAPI using D1 and Common Files for D2 and D3.  Remember that the config is managed by
BDECfg32.EXE on D2 and D3.  Actually D3 has a newer tool.

As for the Directory list, the best way is to use FindFirst/FindNext.  This way you can create any output you want and put it wherever you want.
