I am unable to run an .exe outside of the Borland c++4.5
environment. I presume I need a dll or something for this windows executable to run by itself. Can you help?
Watch Question

Try use staticaly linked libraries in your application.
Good luck.


Can you explain what statically linked libraries are and where I can find reference materials on the net.

Statically linked libraries are libs that are linked in when your  linker links.  You can set this option by right clicking on your exe in the project view, select Target Expert, select static.  What this does essentially is link the DLLs at link time instead of requiring you to supply the DLLs.  Also, set you PATH environment to your \LIB directory and the system will get your LIB from there.
