You can use a dll-version of the rtl with c++b 3, actually it's standard.
But when you try using the in-exe linked runtime-library it still wants the dll.

It does not seem to be using the DLL as a default.  It seems to be using a linked in run-time library.  How do I get it to use the DLL?

If you go to Project | Options | Linker you'll see a checkbox "use dynamic RTL".  If this is selected, the linker should use the dll version of the rtl, the standard dll is called "vcl35.bpl" or something.

My C++B3 had it originally on.  And when I tested my program on someone else's computer, it asked for the file vcl35.bpl and wouldn't start otherwise, but this didn't change by turning it off.  (Maybe I'm missing the right checkbox altogether, or maybe it's a bug - I don't know).

Hope this helps
