I am using Borland 4.5 to create a simple Windows 3.x+ app which I would like to distribute from my web page.
Problem:
The program will not run unless it can find Borland's run time library called bc450rtl.dll.  Is there any way to write a simple application without having to distribute this dll with the application?  What is the purpose of bc450rtl.dll?

That is the run-time library.  That is all the procedures you call from the standard C and C++library, like strcy() and strlen(), fopen, printf() etc.

You should have an option to link with a "static version of the run-time library"  that is what you want.  You are currently linking with the "DLL version of the run-time library."

Nietod, that was the problem.  I had the program targeted as dynamic instead of static.  I changed the setting to a static target and now I don't need the run time library to run the application.  Thanks!
